A WINCHESTER school has formally opened a state-of-the-art building for business and computing.

The new four-classroom block at Kings’ has been named after the old local girl’s school, Danemark, to represent the history of the site.

Danemark merged with Montgomery of Alamein boys school in 1985 to form Kings’.

The classrooms are equipped with new model desktop computers for pupils and Smart Screen technology for teachers to present at the front of the room.

A spokesperson for Kings’ said: “The school looks forward to making great use of this fantastic new teaching space for many years to come.”

A commemorative plaque was unveiled during an evening event by Gwyn Evans and Jane Marsh, former deputy headteachers at the school.

Pupils started with ‘mocktails’ and canapés and concluded with business focused presentations from three successful local business leaders.
