A look inside Suthers School: School finally at the heart of its community says head boy and head girl
Students who previously spent up to two hours travelling to and from school each day say they will take advantage of time saved ahead of their GSCEs.
Head girl Amelia Beresford-Wilson, 14, who will be a year ten student in September, said: “There are so many new facilities we can use.
“I was on the bus for two hours a day, because it was the first and last bus but living in Newark and travelling here means I can spend more time concentrating on my learning rather than travelling.”
Head boy Cody Harrison, 14, of Balderton, said he planned to take advantage of the drama facilities.
The school will serve Balderton, Newark, Fernwood and Middlebeck in principle.
It plans to build further ties in the community and eventually rent out its sports facilities, which includes two football pitches, two multi-use game areas, an activity studio, a sports hall with badminton courts, basketball courts, cricket nets and football goals, to the public.
A sixth form space and drama hall has also been built on the site.
