Juniper helps with relocation of Cambridge prep school
Juniper Real Estate has recently finalised the successful acquisition of a new site for St Colette's Prep School. Working on behalf of Piscari (www.piscari.com) the school's owners, Juniper sourced and secured a former local authority school and adjacent playing fields, in the village of Girton on the edge of the city. St Colette's was founded in 1920 and had outgrown its existing site in central Cambridge. The school will complete the move in April 2009 with over 30,000 sq ft at the new premises, it will allow the continued growth of pupil numbers as well as providing space for the teaching of children with specific learning needs.
Robert Hancock, CEO of Piscari comments:"As the most academically successful pre-prep school in Cambridge, St Colette’s eventually became hamstrung by its small, central site. This move to Girton is very exciting and will allow significant expansion of the teaching facilities as well as bringing valuable outside games and recreation space. Juniper Real Estate have been invaluable in identifying and acquiring the new site and their local knowledge ensured a smooth transaction"
