Sudbury Secondary School
Sudbury Secondary School
From its humble beginnings as the Sudbury Mining and Technical School, to the formation of two schools – Sheridan Technical School and Sudbury High School, Sudbury Secondary School has a proud history in the Sudbury community for the past 100 years.
While proud of its rich history, Sudbury Secondary School underwent a multi-year renewal project that was completed in 2014. The outcome of this project was an updated facility and a new arts wing equipped with modern instrumental and vocal music rooms and studios for dance, photography as well as theatre, visual and media arts. The arts wing also houses the school’s new library, wood and auto shops as well as the administration offices. As part of the renewal project, more parking was added.
The Sheridan Auditorium, a cornerstone of the school and the Performing Arts Program, has been remodelled with its own entrance, new theatre seating and new modern lighting. It also includes a backstage area with change rooms to accommodate large props and sets. The auditorium and the entire building is fully accessible.
The updated school facility boasts a displacement ventilation system, new energy efficient lighting and boilers and gender-neutral washrooms. It is also home to state-of-the-art science labs, a culinary arts area, fashion design room, weight room, cafeteria and a brand new outdoor classroom. The recent addition accommodates change rooms adjoining a newly renovated gymnasium.
