The new buildings at the academy were declared open on Wednesday 23rd April 2014 as invited guests, governors and pupils gathered on the school lawn for a VIP ceremony.

Former pupil Callum Cooke, a Gresham’s scholar who is now studying fine art at Oxford University, cut the ribbon and said: “As someone who went to the school when it was Oriel and Ormiston, I just want to say how much it deserves a building like this so it can carry on with the hard work it’s always done.”
