BRISTOL PRIMARY OPENS ITS DOORS TO NEW PUPILS
Following an increase in demand for school places locally, a new teaching space has enabled the school to increase from a single form to a two-form entry school, with capacity for an additional 60 children per year group.
The demand has been met by construction of a new teaching block on site by Speller Metcalfe, providing four additional classrooms for Key Stage 2 pupils.
The new classrooms include specialist Design & Technology facilities, as well as two quiet rooms and a medical room which the school did not previously have access to.
“The new building is fantastic, bright and airy and provided that much needed space that all schools desperately need,” said headteacher, Jo Williams.
“We now have a small group space, a lovely DT and kitchen area for the children to cook and learn about food nutrition and hygiene and a library area for all children and staff to access.”
Following a series of projects across Bristol, Speller Metcalfe undertook the work which included providing a new access road to the teaching Block and two covered canopy sail areas as part of the new tarmac play areas and walkways.
“It has been fantastic to see this new building being put to proper use straight away, allowing for temporary accommodation to be removed and teachers and pupils to learn in an appropriate, purpose built environment,” said Andy Metcalfe, joint group managing director at Speller Metcalfe.
He continued: “As well as the new teaching facilities, we have remodelled and refurbished the headteacher and deputy head’s office, the staff room and reception areas which has increased the size significantly, allowing greater freedom of movement and more suitable facilities for this growing school.”
