Sir Robert Woodard opens Woodard Boarding House

We were delighted to welcome Sir Robert Woodard, great grandson of the Woodard Founder Nathaniel Woodard, to St. James’ for the very first time this week for the opening of the fantastic new boarding facility.

Following a lovely blessing from the Senior Provost of Woodard, Revd. Brendan Clover, Sir Robert officially cut the ribbon of the new boarding house. 

The Mayoress of Grimsby, Headmaster, Governors and many other guests attended the opening of the new house and enjoyed a tour of the facility with the boarding staff, Senior Prefects and boarding students.

The new Boarding Houseparents, Mr and Mrs Hughes, and longstanding Houseparent Mrs Champion are all delighted with the new building and were extremely proud to welcome all of the guests and show them around the much improved bright common room, kitchen and study rooms.
