I doubt anyone will be unaware of the Landmark Campus development the school is completing in May of this year and the subsequent relocation and consolidation the School will be undertaking over the summer recess. After 517 itinerant years since establishment, this major transformation into a co-educational, advanced and modern school will bring Kings home to the new 80 Acre site on the Alderley edge road. Simon will share the journey and what this huge change means for the school and pupils. Go to this link for some more detail and pictures: http://www.kingsmac.co.uk/new-campus
