Science Block





To demolish the existing pool and erect a new, much needed, Life Sciences teaching block.


Over the past decade the number of boys selecting to study Life Sciences has almost doubled.  The building of additional classrooms/laboratories is crucial.  Herewith lies the problem.  There is no space in the academic block as it stands to house additional classrooms.  Locations for these classrooms were identified across the campus but would create difficulties for the boys in terms of timeously reaching classes.  It was for this reason that urban planners were appointed to assist with finding alternatives.  In moving the Mallett Centre and the pool, the existing pool could be demolished and the new classrooms can be erected in the academic block.

Upgrades have also been earmarked for the Science Laboratories bringing them in line with high international specifications.

Existing Science Laboratory


  • Building these classrooms will accommodate the growing number of boys wishing to study Life Sciences.
  • Through partnerships with community organisations such as LEAP and various outreach teaching initiatives, the benefits of this upgrade will extend beyond our school’s boundaries.
  • Building of these classrooms is subject to the successful relocation of the Mallett Centre and pool.
