The building was commissioned by the Oldershaw Trust Board to meet the growing needs of this heavily oversubscribed school and was officially opened by the Chair of the Trust Board, Dr. Ian Cubbin, alongside special guest Dave Critchley, Executive Chef of renowned restaurant Lu Ban, and North West representative chef on the Great British Menu 2022.
The official opening also saw the unveiling a new portrait of Dr. John Oldershaw, the schools founder, produced by renowned local artist, Joe Forrest, which was kindly sponsored by Frank Rogers Construction.
School Principal, Jon Bush said, ”This new building will be a stunning addition to the already excellent facilities at the school and provide students and staff with a contemporary and nutritious food offer in keeping with the second century of the school’s education offer.”
