Margaret Williams Building Officially Opened
Wye School was honoured today by a visit from the Viscount D’Lisle, Lord Lieutenant of Kent, and Lady D'Lisle, who officially opened our new Margaret Williams Building. The event, which marks the completion of our building works, started with a tour of the school for the Lord Lieutenant and other guests, including a drama performance, a PE demonstration, an Art exhibition, and meeting Duke of Edinburgh and Combined Cadet Force participants. The Lord Lieutenant then unveiled a plaque marking the occasion and was treated to musical performances by Year 7 and Year 10 students. In their speeches at the event the Lord Lieutenant, Dame Sally Coates representing United Learning, Margaret Williams the Chair of Governors and Luke Magee the Principal, all thanked the parents, students, local community and external people involved with setting up and opening Wye Free School in 2013 for their support and hard work, and everyone who has helped deliver our new buildings and facilities. Wye School’s journey to completion finishes in September when the first Year 13 students will round off the seven years of growth since opening.
