At present, some of our students are struggling with the stairs at our current premises in Meltham Mills.
We took a leap of faith in 2012 with renting at Meltham Mills, but we’ve had 6 wonderful years here. Also, we have been very proud to offer a space dedicated to language learning to over 300 students in the region.
However, as the numbers of our students is growing and we have introduced another 3 languages, our original 3 rooms has seriously been restricting our scope. We even lost potential Japanese students because we simply had no room available at 7pm. Some of our classes are quite “cosy” in the smallest room.
Finally, after an extensive search, we have found the new premises we were looking for: Unit 7, at Queen’s Square Business Park, Honley, will house 5 classrooms, a kitchenette and a breakout area. Without stairs!
At present, the unit is a vast space with 2 toilet and shower cubicles. Extensive work is starting this week to be ready by the September term and will include:
- partition walls creating 5 classrooms
- suspended ceilings for better acoustics and heat retention
- overhauling the electric circuits and lighting
- bringing in a gas supply
- installing a central heating system
- installing ventilation
- fitting new flooring throughout
- fitting a kitchenette and creating a breakout area.
Our team really believe in the school and love our work with our fantastic students.
We are convinced the new premises will transform the Modern Language School from a great place to learn to the great place to learn in the region.
We will keep you posted with progress reports of the renovations and look forward to welcoming you all to the new school in September.
