25 years in the making - Another brick in the wall

Updated: Feb 8, 2023

The corner-stone brick of the classroom block was laid by Mrs Henning and Mrs Strever (the daughter of HGM Stanford, the constructor of the lake which bears his name) on 30th September 1997. The colour of the bricks was a much debated topic among the founding members. Those in favour of the more yellow brick had their way and the present colour of the teaching blocks was chosen. However, the “red brick brigade”, led by Maggie Baleta, did not go down without a fight and in deference to her wishes, you’ll see a single red brick in the wall on the side of the CAT lab.
