New College School pavilion opens after £10k revamp

AN OXFORD school has opened a revamped sports pavilion after a £10,000 renovation.
New College School’s Fuller Pavilion – named after former head boy Simon Fuller, who died in 1983 aged 13 with his family in a helicopter crash – was completely revamped over the summer.
Retired Arsenal and England footballer Martin Keown, who lives in North Oxford, opened the structure, pictured, on Friday.
Headteacher Robert Gullifer said: “It looks stunning. There is a new deck, balustrading and new storage area.”
The money was raised by the Parents’ Association, which raised cash for the original pavilion in 1983.
Sports director Craig Bishop said: “It’s fantastic. The boys have somewhere pleasant to get changed and it makes them feel more positive.”
