Warwick Davis opens plush new learning center
Warwick Davis was recently honored with the duty of opening an all-new, fully facilitated learning center for the sixth-form pupils at Bourne Academy (formerly Robert Manning Technology College) in Lincolnshire.
During the celebration, Davis officially opened the center by unveiling a plaque after giving a motivational speech to the school’s teachers and students. About the event and the school’s new facilities, he stated,
I was honoured to have been asked to open the fantastic new sixth[-]form centre at Bourne Academy.
Bourne Academy is a very creative environment, and I am particularly impressed with its celebration of drama and the performing arts. It is important that students doing A-levels and BTECs have somewhere to study and relax, and the new sixth[-]form area will serve them well.
This brand new center now gives the sixth-form pupils a chance to study in style – with large office areas and numerous computers in which to do so – along with a common room for a bit of relaxation time.
£400,000 was given from the Department of Education’s Academies Capital Maintenance Fund in order to produce this new area, along with £70,000 from the local authority and council. Chairman of the academy’s governors, Will Hawkins, said,
Opening the new sixth[-]form learning centre is a significant step for Bourne Academy. The new building provides not only super facilities but also an environment for the pupils to study more easily and to aspire to do even better.
