Edward Wesson, the Headmaster of Skinners' School, said:
"This project is all about supporting our students’ search for intellectual growth, and is part of the process of making all the school’s facilities fit for the 21st Century. We are aiming to to create a new Sixth Form study centre, new classrooms to house the English department, and a new School Library. This has the potential to be a truly transformative construction that will benefit every boy at the school. We are very grateful to Kent County Council for supporting the project and we are appealing to the school community for their help to enable us to complete construction by 2020."
