Following an extensive expansion over the last two years, new classrooms have been officially opened by the Chairman of Worcestershire County Council today (June 30) at Nunnery Wood Primary School.
The phased programme of development has seen additional accommodation for children created, allowing more children to access the popular and achieving school.
The building improvement comprised of extensions and internal refurbishment, these included the construction of three new classrooms with group learning spaces and cloakrooms, and expansion to the current hall.
This development formed part of Worcestershire County Council's Capital Investment Programme in meeting the need for additional pupil places in Worcester City.
Head Teacher Sue Mason said: ‘The school community is delighted with the works that have been done, and, after the inevitable period of disruption, are very much enjoying the opportunities that these improvements have provided. The school buildings and grounds are now extremely impressive, and offer accommodation in which children can learn, play and thrive.’
Cllr Ian Hopwood, Chairman of Worcestershire County Council said: "The County Council has a well-deserved track record in providing sustainable public buildings and our schools are no exception. It was a great honour to open the new £1,890,000 extension. The pupils, who are very hard working, now have an excellent environment to work and develop in. These new and exciting buildings, will I am sure, benefit pupils for many generations to come."
