A BASSETLAW school is to get a £500,000 investment.

Ranby House School governors have announced to parents exciting plans for the development of the school over the next two years.

It is planning to further invest £500,000 in classroom development and state-of-the-art teaching equipment.

It follows the recent development of a purpose built performing arts centre and refurbishment of the chapel.

“This investment marks a significant step forward ensuring that our main teaching areas are modernised to the same high standards of our other facilities on the school campus,” said headteacher David Sibson.

The school board also announced changes to teaching in response to the increasing trend towards conventional Monday to Friday schooling.

There will be gradual phasing out of boarding and Saturday morning lessons, but governors stressed that competitive sport would continue to be played on Saturday.

Ranby House School and its senior school Worksop College are part of the Woodard School group of over 40 owned or affiliated schools across the UK.

Established in 1848, Woodard Schools have an outstanding reputation for providing academic excellence coupled with unrivalled pastoral care. Each school caters for the individual where every student is valued for themselves and encouraged to give their very best.

Ranby House School will be holding their summer open morning on Saturday 7th May when families will get a chance to see the school and meet the headmaster, staff and pupils.
