    Default Rutland college Main Block, Oakham, May13


    Explore with Frizman!

    Third and final phase of exploring Rutland college, and finally cracked the main block. Having previously explored the Arts block, and the Boarding house for the site, it was nice to finally see the main block which had Geography, media studies, the crèche, maths, the library, reception, & Chemistry lab. Somehow missed the sports hall.

    The Rutland college itself closed in September 2012, after relocating to a new site. It was a sixth form college mostly for A levels, for students aged 16-19. Rumour has it the site has been sold to a supermarket.


    The library




    reception


    admin


    server cupboard




    classroom




    science




    chemistry lab










    creche




    These were 500+ dead wasps!


    theatre




    thanks for looking!

    Yes 500+ dead wasps!
    The nest was on the floor in the corner, it had obviously fallen from the ceiling.
    Just glad they were all dead, or I wouldnt have been able to get out the room quick enough!

    Great report. Loved the dead wasps and the baby grand piano left behind. It should have been donated to another local school. I hate seeing musical instruments go to waste.
