Wolverley students and staff are delighted with the new addition to their beautiful school. An oak shelter has been constructed in the Sebright quad area so that everyone can enjoy being outside whatever the weather. The shelter was constructed by John Ford of Lignum Crafts and is made from responsibly sourced oak. The Sebright's Educational Foundation kindly funded the project in full and it is fitting that the shelter is now the centrepiece of the Sebright quad. The design took inspiration from the architecture of the clock tower and many staff, students and parents have commented that the shelter looks as if it has always been there.
The plaque that has been placed on the side of the shelter reads "This shelter was constructed by John Ford of lignum Crafts in January 2016. It is made from responsibly sourced oak. The Sebright’s Educational Foundation kindly funded the project in order to enhance facilities for students in the Sebright quad area of Wolverley CE Secondary School”
During construction students in maths were involved in calculating the quantity and cost of roofing materials and were consulted on design and finish. Their calculations were spot on and they were delighted to see the shelter finished to such a high standard. We are looking forward to some warmer weather when we will hold one of our famous charity BBQs underneath the shelter. Our thanks go to the Sebright's Educational Foundation for funding the project and to John Ford of Lignum Crafts for his hard work and enthusiasm for the project.
