Buy a brick

Your Name, Your Brick, and Our Shared History!

The Maltby Learning Trust has accessed Levelling Up Funding to refurbish the old Maltby Grammar School building. The re-purposing of the old Grammar School building will create a mixed-use, flexible complex providing a new sixth-form centre, a facility that will support training and lifelong learning courses, bookable workspaces and meeting rooms, and the Trust’s central services.

Enclosing the courtyard will create a new heart space accessed from a new entrance piazza and served by a coffee shop for use by the building users and the public. The heart space will be available as a general social meeting place, an exhibition space, a performance area, or a large meeting or presentation space.

This project will transform a building that is important to the local community’s heritage and a valuable part of the public realm.

The Trust has launched this 'Buy a Brick’ scheme that will allow Maltby alumni, including former staff or students of the Maltby Grammar School or any of the subsequent secondary schools, and community members that have an association with any of the schools, to purchase a personalised brick face that is engraved with their names and dates of attendance (where appropriate).

The bricks will cost £40 each and will be used to create a wall on the new entrance piazza into the building.

The aim is for the campaign to generate excitement and community involvement in this local venture.
