STUDENTS getting ready for their exams at Milford Haven School now have a dedicated space to revise, thanks to the Port of Milford Haven.
Following three months of construction work, the school’s dated former common room has been transformed into a bright, airy sixth form Study Centre, which was officially opened last week.
Students are now able to access the latest IT equipment and their very own meeting room where they can discuss and practice presentations.
Those who have recently been studying for exams have also found the new facility is the perfect place to revise, even in school holidays.
Deputy head boy Josh Thomas said: “Unlike at home, you’ve got no distractions. Even at half term we’ve all been coming in and using the room.”
“The old common room wasn’t a patch on this one,” added head boy Harry Turner.
Headteacher Rod Francis said he was “delighted to have this opportunity to support our students in a professional environment to prepare them for independent study at university”.
Mark Andrews, Corporate Affairs Director at the Port of Milford Haven, is fully supportive of the facility.
“I am particularly impressed with the new meeting room, which works on a similar basis to the Boardroom at the Port,” he said.
“This element of the project is just one of the ways that the centre is helping to prepare students for university and the world of work”.
“Supporting the Sixth Form Study Centre is just one of the projects that the Port of Milford Haven and Milford Haven School are working together on.”
