Withington Girls’ School aims to further boost sports performance and participation levels through the development of a new £1.75m Sports Centre, scheduled to open next Spring.
Following the opening of its £5m Junior School and Hub two years ago, work has now commenced to transform the existing gym and sports hall into an “inspirational” new amenity.
Under the remodelling and extension scheme there will be an expanded area for sports and PE, with viewing galleries; a large fitness suite; a multi-purpose “mind and body” studio to promote wellbeing; and a light and airy reception and hospitality area.
Withington’s sports teams and elite athletes will benefit from these significant improvements to training facilities – but WGS Headmistress Mrs Sarah Haslam says the space will play an integral role in the School’s Health and Development Plan, providing “something for everyone”, including Junior School pupils whose timetable includes daily PE lessons.
