DPR Roofing has been commissioned to carry out a roof survey on the much respected Queen Elizabeth Grammar School of Wakefield (QEGS).

Roof surveys on commercial buildings are vitally important and can help to locate and diagnose serious roofing problems before they escalate out of control. Usually an issue found during a survey can be addressed with straight away and costs a lot less than if the whole roof had a problem.

The Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and Wakefield Girls&#146 High School, which are opposite, have made a rich contribution to the lives of many boys and girls from West and South Yorkshire.

Managing Director Darren Rickett was delighted at having the opportunity to work with such an established school and said: “The survey will require the services of our own powered access platform and we are proud to be chosen to for delivering roofing services to such a highly regarded establishment. This adds to roofing services already supplied to other renowned schools such as Silcoates & The Quaker School of Ackworth.”

Information about QEGS:

QEGS is distinct from most other schools in Yorkshire in that it was founded by Royal Charter of Queen Elizabeth I in 1591 at the request of leading citizens in Wakefield, some of whom formed the first governing body. In 1854 QEGS moved to its present site in Northgate, Wakefield, into premises formerly occupied by the West Riding Proprietary School.

Changing opinions were prevalent during the nineteenth century and a movement for the social and educational emancipation of women gathered pace. The QEGS Governors agreed to pursue this and in 1878 WGHS opened with 59 pupils located in Wentworth House, its current location.

Both QEGS and WGHS are committed to working together as part of Wakefield Grammar School Foundation. Led by a 19 person Governing Body, they aim to ensure that all present and future pupils from Wakefield and beyond can enjoy and benefit from an excellent education.
