A CO-EDUCATIONAL day school in Southsea is celebrating opening a new senior department to coincide with its 120th anniversary, supported by a significant loan from Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking.
Mayville High School officially opened the new ‘Michael Babcock House’ — named in honour of the chair of trustees — last week. It includes a hall, six classrooms, a design and technology workshop, a student common room and an IT suite.
Headteacher Rebecca Parkyn said: ‘This is a significant step forward for the school in its development programme and staff and pupils will benefit hugely from the new building.’
Tracy King, education relationship manager at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, said: ‘We’ve enjoyed an excellent relationship with Mayville High School over many years, and with the latest round of funding, the team will be able to provide a superb new space for pupils.
‘Supporting schools that are nurturing the talent of tomorrow is an important part of our commitment to helping Britain prosper.’
