We are delighted to announce that the new 6th Form Common Room was officially opened by our Chair of Governors, Mrs Sue O’Brian, yesterday. The common room has undergone an extensive upgrade following feedback received from our 6th Form students. Our Student Voice representatives requested that the room was redesigned to make it a more welcoming learning environment for students, where they can access resources required for independent study.
Premises Manager Steve Dyke and his team have done an amazing job of transforming the room. Upgrades include complete redecoration, re-wiring, new lighting, installation of electric and USB sockets, replacement of carpets and new computer work stations have been installed.
We would like to say a huge thank you to the Friends of the John Frost School who kindly donated a sum of money to contribute towards the cost of the refurbishment; to Newport City Homes for the donation of furniture for the room; to PSR Controls who carried out the extensive re-wiring of the area and to our IT Support team Mark Thorne and Rhys James who have installed several PC workstations and a Wi-Fi solution for 6th Form access.
