STUDENTS are “delighted” to have moved into the first purpose-built sixth form centre at a Doncaster private school.

The 35 sixth-formers at Hill House School, Auckley, are now settling into their new educational environment.

The £1 million centre, the first in the school’s long history, includes dedicated seminar rooms, private study space, a cafe diner for the students, a lounge, ground floor sports changing facilities, and dedicated parking spaces for the students who drive to school.

Most of the sixth-formers were already Hill House pupils but some of them have transferred from other schools.

Hill House staff are now working on the arrangements for the official opening ceremony next month, at which the Earl of Scarbrough, a former pupil, is expected to unveil a commemorative plaque.
