School starts new building construction
A school has broken ground on construction of a new building to house its international baccalaureate programme.
Somersfield Academy said the building will let the school run the programme from middle school to high school.
Colm Holman, chairman of the school’s board, said: “Being able to allow our students to finish their secondary education here at Somersfield has been an objective of the board for a long time.”
He added: “We eagerly await opening the doors for this new building which act as the home for our offering of the diploma programme as well as improving the overall facilities within the school.”
A spokeswoman for the school added Somersfield Academy will become Bermuda’s first school to offer multiple international baccalaureate programmes.
The building was designed by architects Cooper Gardner architecture and is being built by D&J Construction.
It will extend the Devonshire school’s international baccalaureate programme from middle school to high school once complete.
Kate Ross, head of the diploma programme at the school, said: “This is an exciting moment in Somersfield Academy’s history and I am delighted to be part of it.
“The new building will provide the students with a dynamic learning centre in which to conclude their high school education through the world-renowned international baccalaureate diploma programme.”
