Townsend School marks first birthday of new sixth form centre
A St Albans school has celebrated the one year anniversary of their brand new sixth form centre by unveiling a unique piece of art work by one of their pupils.
One year ago, the mayor of St Albans at the time, Eileen Harris, opened Townsend School’s new sixth form centre.
The state of the art centre features a fully equipped study room, comfortable common room and classrooms within its own wing of the school. Students also benefit from wireless internet access and small group study rooms.
To celebrate one year on from its opening the school in High Oaks unveiled a unique piece of artwork hung in the entrance to the centre. The mural, designed and completed by Megan-Rose Lewis, an A level Art student, features the school badge and hand prints of the students.
Alongside each hand print is written the student’s ambition or career aspiration. Mr Parker, head of sixth form, said: "This mural really complements the new sixth form centre.
"It echoes the words that underpin our work with the students; ambition, drive and achievement’s.
"All of our students in the sixth form are encouraged to develop clear ambitions about their future plans and then we work with them to ensure that they maintain the drive required to achieve the results that will enable them to realise their ambitions.
"The school sixth form, along with the rest of the school, is enjoying a rise in fortunes recently. This year saw the school increase its GCSE and A level performance significantly and the school is expected to maintain this increase in the years to come."
