Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
Melksham Oak School, Melksham, Wiltshire

UPDATE - July 2010. The school has just opened; I had a chance to have a guided tour and you can see some pictures [here]

[imgl=melksham_oak_community_school]Melksham Oak Community School[/img]Melksham Oak Community School is due to open in the summer of 2010 - the signs have just gone up in early May (as I write), and it's almost complete. Just a "g" is needed in the wording "Technology College"...

We get a lot of phone calls at Well House asking for Melksham Oak.
Their new details are ... Melksham Oak Community School, Bowerhill,SN12 6QZ ... 01225 792 700


Are you Looking for the school's web site?... it is here

[imgr=melksham_oak_may_2010]The Oak Tree[/img]This is the oak tree after which "Melksham Oak Community School" is named; it stands just inside the entrance gate ...

A new secondary school for Melksham - "Melksham Oak" - is under construction, and is due to open to replace the George Ward School in 2010. It will be know - its full title - Melksham Oak Community School.

Map locator - Melksham_Oak


The "Oak" in the name comes after an old Oak tree which is in the corner of tge site ... curently with a load ob builder's barriers around it, and I would suspect that's to ensure that the tree really is still there when the school opens.

The site is well protected with a high hedge (but being winter, it is possible to see through it - if not to photograph through it with branches in the way. Here's a view taken "through the keyhole" - almost literally if only you knew!

Melksham Oak is on the opposite side of town to the George Ward School which it will replace, but I can't fault it for the new siting - here's a picture taken just across the way of the recently expanded Bowerhill area:
