WEST WING GYMNASIUM
In 2013 the original Malton School gymnasium underwent a full scale makeover, with floor to ceiling redecoration, new state of the art lighting and a full regeneration of the original flooring.
The three week project was possible as a result of a £10,000 grant from Awards for All, with the high quality facility now available to the communities of Malton and Norton for evening and weekend lettings.
