CONSTRUCTION work has begun on a new multi-million-pound mathematics and science building at Kingham Hill School.

As we revealed in The Journal last year, the independent school near Chipping Norton is taking on an ambitious £5million expansion project to build a new maths and science block and a new library.

Work began earlier this month to build six new science laboratories as well as six new mathematics classrooms.

Meanwhile, a new library building, which will be treble the size of the current one and has a new split level facility, will be constructed in the summer next year.

West Oxfordshire District Council approved the plans to expand last August.

Headmaster Nick Seward said: "This new facility is an important investment in the future

of Kingham Hill School and there is a real sense of anticipation amongst staff and pupils as we

see the progress on the site each day.

"We look forward to completion of the works in the autumn and the opportunities that the outstanding building will offer to pupils for generations to come."

Phases two and three of the project will include a new sports centre and an updated dining hall.
