They toured the new £3 million building, which houses the sixth form and the new library that is dedicated to former Patesian Nigel Baker where professor Winston held a seminar for pupils and guests.

Mark Harries, associate director at EG Carter and Co Ltd said: "As with most great projects, there is always a stand out ceremony where the new facilities are celebrated.

"However, this one was unique and the seminar by Professor Richard Winston was certainly one to remember.

"Regarding the building, we can honestly say it has been an absolute pleasure working with the school and their team, we hope this great building is enjoyed by teachers and pupils for many years to come."

The £3million centre, was funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency, supplemented by the school's own fundraising appeal.
