Main Hall refurbishment plans at Teesside High School

Monday 22 May 2023 | By Megan Connor

We are delighted to announce exciting plans to refurbish the Main Hall this summer.

As you are hopefully aware, raising funds to support a refurbishment of the Main Hall has been a priority of ours for a couple of years. PTA events such as our popular Family Fireworks Evening, spring term Quiz Nights and last year’s Platinum Jubilee Summer Fair have all contributed to the grand total required to make a start on this impressive project.

We are very pleased to say that we now have sufficient funding to complete phase one of the Main Hall transformation. Over the summer, this work will include:

  • A complete overhaul of the Main Hall flooring; the existing hardwood floor will be sanded and given a new lacquer seal, giving a new, lighter, timeless oak finish.
  • New staging curtains; the enormous 4m x 6m curtains and pelmet which frame the stage will be replaced with beautiful forest green drapes.
  • New blackout curtains; we will retain the elements needed to create a professional performance space by renewing the blackout curtains throughout the hall.
  • Painting and decorating; the entire hall and balcony will feature a warm and inviting colour scheme.
  • Beautiful new oak entrance and exit doors will also be installed to complement our new look.

As you will know, the Main Hall balcony has been in need of a refresh for some years now. The bright carpet and cinema-style seating, while comfortable, are a little outdated to say the least, and we have hopes to complete the Main Hall transformation by bringing this in line with the rest of the space’s new look. Watch this space!
