On Friday Jonathan Suffolk, the National Theatre’s Technical Director officially opened the school’s new arts centre. The Griffin Centre includes a 350-seat auditorium, mirrored dance studio with ballet barres and a sprung floor, dressing rooms, prop and set workshop and costume store. Set into the historic landscape of the school the building is the first to be built on the site for 27 years.
The opening ceremony included performances from the pupils including ballet and contemporary dance in the bespoke dance studio, poetry and an excerpt from the school’s production of Agatha Christie’s ‘And Then There Were None’.
