Phase 3 of the nine-phase RGS Masterplan involved the conversion of old DT labs into new state-of-the-art Chemistry labs, followed by the building of a fourth floor extension over the existing three-storey ‘Spine’ block between two central courtyards. This provides a suite of 9 new Modern Foreign Languages classrooms and language laboratory within the existing building footprint, building upwards due to the tight urban site. The project also comprises new offices, break-out learning space, a 160 person seminar/exam room and integrates services for two future atriums, one for Study (Phase 4) and one for Dining (Phase 7) infilling the existing courtyards either side of the Spine. The new facilities were handed over in October 2018.
