Budmouth sixth form café takes the 'Biscuit'
FORMER vice-principal Neil Hardisty performed the honours to open the new Budmouth sixth form café.
With a ‘Budmouth Biscuit’ in his hands, Doctor Hardisty – a Budmouth veteran of thirty six years – unveiled a plaque to formally mark the opening of the bistro.
He said: “It’s going to open doors for our sixth formers and many future generations of students studying here at Budmouth.”
Guests at the opening included the architect and project manager of both the new bistro and the newly opened Hub, Simon Duck from Interserve.
He said: “The café will definitely be positive for the students as food is an important part of the gateway between college and university life. “Having only left university a few years ago, I do know how important these independent spaces are.”
Sixth form students have been delighted by the new café.
Claire Webb a Year 12 student, said: “It gives me time and space to relax and the Wi-Fi is fantastic.”
Budmouth already has a Costa Café but with the rapid growth of the sixth form an additional facility was required.
The new café has taken six months to build, cost £600,000 and accommodates up to 100 students.
