What’s happening at the Belgrave build?
Many of you might be wondering what’s happening at our Belgrave branch at the moment. When you left at the end of the summer term, our supremely capable construction team had already started knocking down the old to make way for the new. They’re literally helping to build a new future for Spark.
How is the building changing?
This expansion is helping Spark to go up in the world – quite literally as for the first time we’ll have a second storey extension! The upstairs will house one of our impressive state of the art classrooms and represents all the values that Spark encompasses. Furthermore, the new building will showcase our desire for a modern approach to tuition and our belief in providing a positive environment to work and study in. Belgrave is about to become a community hub of learning. It will provide our students and parents with a space to learn, laugh and really make the most of their time with us. In addition, the benefits of the centre will extend to the staff as well as students. For example, there will be fabulous new office spaces for Mital and Nidhi, and a zen garden to keep us grounded and relaxed.
What are we looking forward to?
Nic is most looking forward to creating a green space on Melton Road for relaxation. She is excited to introduce an eco-friendly vibe to the centre too. Nidhi is not just excited about the bigger kitchen, but also the brighter reception space. Our brighter entrance will definitely match her role as Chief Happiness Operator!
Chris can’t wait to hold his Year 12 and 13 classes in our specially designed upper-level A-level space. Mital is anticipating her personalised new office. Soon she’ll have somewhere to hold the meetings, make the phone calls and continue her tireless effects to develop Spark.
I could go on to describe how we’re reducing Spark’s carbon footprints with LED lights and recycling areas. It would be easy to talk about building a space full of natural light with more windows. I could also mention the set of French doors out to our zen garden. Or I might talk for hours about our vision for the new décor inside. I think you understand our excitement!
So… when are you moving in?
We haven’t got an official move in date yet. Although the build has taken slightly longer than we thought, it won’t be long before Spark is back on Melton Road where it belongs. As the saying goes ‘good things come to those who wait…
