A new support centre for students has been opened at Hinchley Wood School.

The Moya Connell Centre (MCC), named after a long-time supporter of the school and previous chairman of governors, provides a welcoming environment where students seeking support can work in safe and calm surroundings.

The new facility became operational in September and the support available ranges from mentoring and study skills programmes to breakfast and lunchtime clubs.

The school said it had already seen a number of students grow in confidence and gain a more positive outlook academically and socially.

The establishment of a student support centre was one of the first goals set by the Hinchley Wood Education Trust.

The main objective of the trust is to advance the education of students at Hinchley Wood School and develop the creative potential and aspirations of young people.

Headteacher Steve Poole said: “I am very pleased we are able to offer this kind of resource for students and would like to thank the Hinchley Wood Education Trust and parents for their support.”
