A private school has announced that it is close to completing its state-of-the-art multimillion-pound university center by the start of the next school year.
Haberdashers ‘Aske Boys’ School in Elstree is investing £ 20million in two new buildings that will house 46 new classrooms, for core subjects such as math, English, modern languages, theology, philosophy and economics.
A new theater studio will also be created.
Construction began in the spring of last year and the school is on track to open the facilities to students in the summer term of 2022.

The university hub will also include a range of light and airy relaxation areas for teaching and study.

Speaking about the new facilities, Gus Lock, Director of Habs Boys’, said: “We are now entering a very exciting phase in the development of our campus. We are fortunate to have been able to continue construction for the past five months as we are currently occupying the old classrooms pending completion.
“Our students are naturally enthusiastic about using the new facilities, which are modern, spacious and have plenty of natural light. The environment will allow more versatile learning approaches and, most importantly, will also allow us to expand our partnership programs. ”
Mr. Lock added: “Our plans do not end there. The evolution of the Habs is an ongoing journey towards excellence with a commitment to providing an exceptional education to today’s youth.
