Staff and pupils celebrated the opening of the recently renovated tennis courts yesterday.
Thankfully, it was one of the warmest days of the year so far, as pupils gathered excitedly for the grand opening at the beginning of lunch. Our Head Boy and Head Girl had the honours of cutting the red ribbon before pupils poured onto the courts to play football and other ball games.
With generous support from Blackburn Diocese, the transformation from a large, tatty space to a state of the art multi-use games area has taken place. The space has been divided into two areas; the smaller area is comprised of three tennis courts and a basketball court. This section is available for use at break and lunch, for ball games. The larger space is a 2G Astro Turf football pitch, this space is an outdoor classroom.
A higher specification fence has replaced the old fencing and the drainage area has undergone improvements, which should ensure that the surface lasts for many years.
