The Hemel Hempstead School - Buildings - Alterations


Over the years many of the older buildings have seen many minor alterations, due to an upgrade, change in functionality, or change in requirements. Main Block has had the most of these. The old assembly hall (replaced in 1968) is now almost unrecognizable from its previous state. Sometime in the 2000s it was converted into a dance studio and had the upper 8th near the reception partitioned as a Connexions centre. In 2011/2012 the walls inside the building were reconstructed to remove any asbestos that may have presented a safety hazard. Several arches which presented the way to the old sports hall at the back of Main Block have been partitioned off as offices and changing rooms. In 2011 most of the original windows from 1931 were replaced, though some more discrete ones remain.

Famous quotes containing the word alterations:

    I put the gold star up in the front window
    beside the flag. Alterations is what I know
    and what I did: hems, gussets and seams.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
