Students help construct new Sports Pavilion

The Autumn term has marked the start of construction of a new sports pavilion at Bedales School dedicated to the memory of former student Sam Banks, who died at the age of 20 whilst travelling in India. In Outdoor Work, large oak beams are being shaped to form the pavilion’s framework by Old Bedalians Gabriel Langlands, John Russell and Henry Russell. Students have been helping chisel the green English Oak into the many elements of the framework using a traditional English timber framing method. The next phase of the project will be to transport the timber frame to its permanent home, where the foundations are being made ready for the erection of the framework. Read more. View photos.
