During the Easter break the School Hall and Music Wing were demolished and the girls returned to find a pile of rubble in place of these buildings. The next phase of archaeological investigation was carried out and interestingly, we have been able to clearly identify the precise location of the second Hemsted house built on the site. The last archaeological investigation phase will be carried out when the foundation evacuations are dug for the new footings.
The crusher has been turning the rubble into stone to be used for the hard landscaping of the site and infill for the new building. This is nearing completion and then the team from Buxton will be preparing the site ready for the groundworks to commence for the new School Hall and Music School .
