School Development Plans
We are pleased to announce that work is set to get underway on a multi-million pound redevelopment project at Tettenhall College. Our plans include a striking new sixth form centre, a modernised library, upgraded boarding houses and additional sporting facilities, all due to be finished by the end of 2017.
Details of each project and updates can be found on this page.
New Sixth Form Centre
The stunning new sixth form centre at the heart of the School will provide the best of both worlds for pupils with a mezzanine IT and study area. A brand new contemporary sixth form common room is also planned and is due to be completed by Summer 2017.
Sport will be given a boost with the installation of two multi-purpose games areas, for tennis, netball and football. In addition, the School’s squash courts will be given a refurbishment thanks to a former pupil’s generous legacy. Graham Aston a keen squash player, left a £400,000 legacy to the School to nurture talented young squash players.
The School’s Boarding Houses celebrate their 150th anniversary this year and will also be refurbished with a modern and welcoming new look as well as stylish en-suite bathrooms.
The Towers is one of Wolverhampton’s few Grade II* listed buildings and as part of the work restoration of its roof will be undertaken. The ‘Towers’ were added in 1866 by eccentric owner and inventor Colonel Thomas Thorneycroft but now houses the School’s music department and theatre which regularly hosts local community theatre groups.
