Library 'Topping Out' Ceremony at St Mary's

On 10th December, we marked the latest milestone in the development of the new library with a 'topping out' ceremony. Governors, staff, students and Lady Lansdowne (Patron of the Calne Foundation Trust) donned hi-vis jackets, gloves and hard hats before being given a guided tour of the site.

Designed by internationally renowned architects, Woods Bagot, and built by Beard Construction, the new library will be a lively academic hub for the school - a place that will instil a love of reading, research and learning, encouraging exploration and the pursuit of knowledge, as well as collaboration and the sharing of ideas. The project is due to finish in the summer ready for the new academic year.
