The construction of the new build has begun to incorporate use of the Auger, a cork-screw shaped drill which goes deep into the ground. This special construction rig is used to dig post holes or create a space for 'deep foundation', a compact type of foundation in construction which will provide a stable base for the new school building.

The following are artist Renditions of the upcoming school. Our school will boast state-of-the-art facilities to ensure every scholar receives a high-quality education, as well as developing their non-academic qualities.
One key feature of our building will be the Lecture Hall, allowing scholars to learn in a ‘university style’ format during classes. This will set the tone for the ambitious and academically challenging education they expect, as well as serving as good preparation ahead of the students’ future in higher education.
We will also have space for dedicated dining facilities. This way, staff and scholars may sit down to lunch together, building on the strong family ethos that is central to the school's philosophy.
Featuring a Sports Hall beside the entrance with modern equipment, the school hopes to boost the achievements of scholars in more ways than just academia, encouraging healthy, active lifestyles and dedication to extra-curricular pastimes.
