Foundation Stone laid at New £14M School Building

Bishop John Sherrington, Auxiliary Bishop of Westminster led a service at St Richard Reynolds School recently to lay and bless the foundation stone of a new £14M teaching block to be built by GRAHAM in Twickenham.

To celebrate the start on site of a new four-storey addition to St Richard Reynolds Catholic College in Twickenham, GRAHAM Construction was invited to attend a service led by Bishop John Sherrington, Auxiliary Bishop of Westminster. The ceremony marked the important milestone with the laying and blessing of a foundation stone.

The existing College site, west of Twickenham town centre, is currently home to the College’s 180-place primary school and 1,050-place secondary school. The new four-storey 6,934 sq m building will provide classrooms, halls, a kitchen and dining facility, specialist sports hall and changing rooms alongside ancillary accommodation, playgrounds and carparks to support the school’s expansion. The new facilities will also be shared with Strathmore School, a Special Educational Needs school, which will be moving to the site in September 2017.

GRAHAM Construction was appointed by the Westminster Roman Catholic Diocese Trustee to build the new £14 million school building for St Richard Reynolds Catholic College, the third phase of planned improvements to the college, in 2016. Works are expected to complete in August 2017 in time for the new school year.
