Last week Collyer’s welcomed students, staff, governors, former Principal David Arnold (1983- 99), and their wonderful construction team from Sunninghill and BAQUS for an informal opening event for Collyer’s brand-new café. The space has beautiful, commissioned student art on the main café wall and houses a new office for our student union.

Principal Dan Lodge said: “We are all really pleased with this fantastic new venue that gives our community much needed extra space with a high street style café and a performance area that will host music concerts, art exhibitions and awareness raising events.
“All of this project was funded through the generosity of John Snelling OC (1942 – 49) who remembered Collyer’s with great fondness and left us a substantial legacy in his will.”
Dan Lodge, Feli Beissel (RCU Co-President) and Susie McAlister gave short speeches of thanks at the opening ceremony
