The astroturf is a full-size playing surface similar to a full-size football pitch. This is mainly used for hockey, football and tennis. Over £4,000 was spent on new aluminium 7-a-side goals and standard hockey goals.

Assembly Hall

The assembly hall has seating for 300 people, integrated sound and light system and a full size stage.

Over the last couple of years the PTFA have contributed quite a significant amount towards to the upgrade of the stage, which includes replacing the old curtains with brand new ones and also replaced the opening mechanism as well as a skirt made for the front of the stage. Over summer 2019, the sound system and the lighting has had some refurbishment. Further down the line, the final step in this project will be to refloor the stage and paint the stage and wings for which the PTFA will help raise more funds.

Our school library underwent a big refurbishment which was transformed thanks to the hard work, commitment and support of the School’s PTFA who also secured a grant from the Lytham School’s Foundation Trust on top of their own fundraising.

The whole space is lit by a new highly effective and energy efficient LED lighting system, features a amphitheatre space perfect for presentations, a large reader area with comfortable seating, a 3D printer, miniature computing hardware for coding and media equipment and a separate silent study space for exam preparation.

Our PTFA regularly uses this space to hold their monthly meetings and fundraising events.
