The Lorraine Mullins Centre for Creative Learning was completed in 2016. Located on the previously vacant land below Top Field, it is designed to facilitate lessons in all subjects, and is a valuable practical teaching space for hands-on science practicals and collaborative project based learning tasks.
The naming of this creative academic space in Lorraine’s honour is most fitting. A stalwart Old Preppie and someone who has been a part of the school since 1942 - first as a schoolboy, then as a stooge, Housemaster and now Archivist - Lorraine Mullins has served Prep and its Preppies for decades and continues to be very much a part of the school.
The former pottery and art room was converted into a Multi-Purpose Studio for Robotics, Manufacturing, Design and Pottery. This re-vamped space is sufficiently versatile as it houses pottery lessons and the new Robotics component of Prep’s curriculum. It also facilitates Design & Technology lessons and manufacturing workshop.
