The "New Buildings" pictures in Pictures, and description of the site now :)

Here's something I can actually help you out with-names of new buildings.

The one labelled "Is this Product Design?" is actually the Paul Woodhouse Centre, where we all eat and socialise :) Downstairs is the canteen, upstairs is the student common room, faculty offices and Student Services. Out the front there is picnic benches that people generally don't eat on, but instead sit on.

The photos labelled "Varley Lodge" are actually just of the Varley building. It's really long and cross shaped, it houses foreign languages, English lit and lang, economics, business studies, maths and performing arts. There is also the Varley Theatre and the Varley cafe there too. The Varley Lodge was demolished before I joined, but i remember it being there when I went on Open Evening.

On the picture "This must be the IT centre", that is again of Varley, not IT. If you can remember the layout of the site, IT is the little brown building next to the west end of Varley, and there are also some IT rooms upstairs in John Shields. The white canopy you can see in this picture is out the front of the Varley cafe, it has more picnic tables underneath it.

John Shields is the newest building, it houses law, psychology, sociology, philosophy and IT/computing A Level.

Then we also have Freeman (small brown brick building) that houses history, geography, politics and classics, Wyke Lodge (some economics, critical thinking and a lot of staff workrooms), Northbrook (library, careers library, open IT facilities), Science Centre (physics, chemistry, biology, human biology, and the lecture theatre where we have general studies lectures) and Mercers Sports Hall (Sport and PE classrooms, a gym, and a sports hall)

There's also the art studios, product design building, and textiles building which are pretty self explanatory :). There's also a small building, with a sort of white wood terrace out the front which is the photography studios.

College Centre just houses the boring stuff like resources, exams, MIS, reception and principal's offices. I think there's also a music recital room.

The two boarding houses are Falkland Lodge (far end of the site, next to the Mercers Sports Hall) and School House (next to Northbrook and John Shields at the front of the site).

Jim's hard disk has crashed

hi Doug,
Oh woe! I tried to send an email to you individually but apparently this computer in Northampton's public library is not set up properly for that.
My hard disk has crashed, my friend who knows everything geeky will look at it tomorrow, in the meantime you're on your own!
 
 
regards,
 
jim
