A new herald

So much has developed at Blanchelande over the last three and a half years that it can be a struggle for anyone to keep up to speed with our latest plans. To keep you up to speed we've developed a new means of communicating our development plans - a Development Update. I hope you like it. There are several further issues in the pipeline.

Our first Development Update focuses on the Infant department. Our Infants used to be based in the picturesque but rather hidden (and back then decidedly shabby-chic) Victor House, one of the oldest and characterful buildings on our rambling estate, a minute or so down the track towards the Little Chapel. We made the decision in 2017 to unify our Infants and Juniors by bringing the Infants up to the main building. But the Infants still get to stretch their legs as they walk down the hill to their playground (which was completely renovated in 2019). Victor House, meanwhile, is now our Arts Centre, bustling with activity from our Art, Music and Drama departments. But that's another story.
