A NEW multi purpose hall has opened at a Moreton-in-Marsh school.

Kitebrook Preparatory School staff and pupils are celebrating the official opening of the new purpose hall, which was recently opened by trustee Katie Pryce and new Cothill Trust chief executive Tom Beardmore-Gray.

Staff at the independent school, which sits on the edge of Moreton-in-Marsh, say the new hall is a welcome addition.

It has a new 345 square metre area, and before the opening was held it had already successfully been used for a parent morning, group assemblies and musical performances.

Staff said the parents enjoyed the new look building, that was recently completed, describing it as a tardis.

Moving forward the plan is for the hall to reap many benefits as a sporting, performance, and presentation arena for years to come.

The hall was enjoyed at a recent open morning and classic car display held on Saturday, September 29.

Headmistress Susan McLean said: “We now have a wonderful light and airy space, with beautiful acoustics, that has been sympathetically built to work in harmony with our building heritage.

"We are very much looking forward all the vibrant activities and events the hall can now embrace."

Kitebrook is a day and flexi-boarding school that caters for boys and girls between the ages of three and 13-years-old and aims to provide an outstanding all-round education, where children are allowed to develop at their own pace in a happy and supportive environment that inspires self confidence and a sense of independence.
