Grand Opening of the New Harrison Centre at Reigate Grammar School
On 24 April 2018 our Trustees attended the opening ceremony of the new Harrison Centre at Reigate Grammar School.
The RGS Harrison Centre is a wonderful new learning and community resource. It houses a new Sixth Form Centre complete with café and social facilities; a High Performance Learning and Innovation room; a library and learning resource centre; a careers library; a series of private study areas as well as some more collaborative spaces; dedicated library classrooms; an upgraded selection of resources and books; classrooms and more. Outside, the area around the war memorial has been remodelled and the war memorial itself has been revitalised, there is a terrace overlooking St Mary’s Church, a lovely garden area and social spaces for students.
Headmaster Shaun Fenton expressed his gratitude to all those who helped make the building happen and paid particular thanks to The Peter Harrison Foundation:
“I am so thankful for the generous donation provided by The Peter Harrison Foundation, without which this amazing Harrison Centre wouldn’t have been possible. Peter, you are a true Reigatian and one of the most important philanthropists of our time.”
