New Arts Centre Opens At School Hit By Fire
A new multi-million pound arts centre is officially opening at a Dorset school, where the original block was destroyed by a huge fire.
Teachers had feared the devastating blaze which gutted the Creative Arts block at Lytchett Minster Upper School, near Poole, in December would cause massive disruption to hundreds of pupils scheduled to sit examinations in the summer.
However, an emergency response team from temporary structure specialists De Boer designed a fully operational state-of-the-art 3,300 square metre temporary facility which took just 45 days to build. It has been completed in time for A-Level and GCSE examinations.
Just weeks after the fire, students have moved into a specialist new facility which was last seen at the London 2012 Olympic Games. It previously formed part of the Athletes' Village at London 2012, and is being officially opened by Dorset-based Olympic shooting gold medalist Peter Wilson on Wednesday 1st May.
