THE HIRST CENTRE
A TRULY MULTI-FUNCTIONAL CENTRE
We should all feel proud of what is one of the best sporting facilities in Cumbria. The new Sports Centre provides 2 competition-sized courts and a truly multi-functional space with the facility for netball, basketball, volleyball, badminton and cricket. Every single pupil is benefiting from access to this flagship project and the aspirations it is bound to inspire. Parents and visitors in particular enjoy a hospitality suite with a viewing gallery across Busk and over the interior courts. Particularly so in bad weather!
The Foundation has been touched by the generosity of the many alumni, parents and friends of the School who have been able to support the Sports Centre appeal. With your help we have been able to raise well above the funding target including a major gift from a loyal supporter and one generous corporate gift. Thank you to all those involved.
We are delighted that our new sports facility is being used by the community, from baby groups to elite GB Netball sessions. In recognition of the community aspect of this facility, the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority awarded the appeal a significant grant towards equipment for community use.
