The Netherhall School Opening of the Muller Building
The Netherhall School and The Oakes College Cambridge are celebrating the naming of their technology faculty as the Muller building. The building was opened by Mike Muller, founder member of ARM Holdings, the multinational semiconductor and software design company.
Both The Netherhall School and The Oakes College Cambridge have a long history of working with ARM, collaborating on technology development projects, hosting the national launch of the BBC Micro-bit and supporting their pioneering work on mental health across Cambridge.
Thanks to a generous donation from Mr Muller, the school has invested in advanced software and computer-aided design machinery which is already transforming the creative work of students.
Chris Tooley, Principal of the school said “Mike Muller has been with the company from the beginning and his story brings together all of the characteristics we are looking to foster. As such we are delighted that he agreed to the naming of the Muller Building in his honour.
“It is crucial that our school curriculum inspires students and connects them with the local community. Our ongoing relationship with ARM reflects that desire: developing students’ creativity, entrepreneurial drive and determination.
Mr Tooley added, “We look forward to deepening this relationship as we move into a time where there will be an ever increasing focus on the harnessing of human creativity to develop the technologies needed for our futures.”
