On 10th January 2017, Keswick Hall, the the brand new Sixth Form Centre at Bright World's partner school, Roedean School was finally revealed to it's Sixth Form students. This was a long-awaited launch, and the girls were pleased with what they saw!
The aim of the redevelopment at Keswick House has been to transform it from a boarding house with study facilities for Year 13 students into a Sixth Form Centre where both Year 12 and Year 13 students can socialise and study. Keswick Hall is a mixture of old and new: many of the original features of the old hall have remained, with the addition of a large mezzanine with laptop bar, large staircases, a state-of-the-art sound and presentation system, comfortable armchairs and sofas, and alcoves for study. It will be a wonderful venue for lectures and chamber music, and the students are already planning social events for later in the term with excitement.
The new Keswick Hall joins the other spaces that the Sixth Form students have been enjoying since they opened in September, including a large, silent study room, a conference room, and a common room with a kitchen area. Over time, more of the members of staff and services that support the Sixth Form will become available in the Keswick Sixth Form Centre.
Whilst the Sixth Form continues to play an important part in leading their school community, the Keswick Sixth Form Centre offers them more sophisticated, calm and inspiring spaces for their independent study and for meeting with others in the Sixth Form.
“We are confident that this new dynamic facility will appeal to discerning families interested in a unique experience at arguably the most important and exciting stage of a student’s education.” – Joanna Clarke, Admissions Assistant.
