With the recent warm weather it seem that everything in the garden has moved on at a pace – and so too with progress on the new school. Some of the externals have taken on their final form; internal walls have gone up inside; and plastering has just begun. It’s beginning to feel more like a school and it’s possible to get a feel of the shape and size of corridors, classrooms and other areas of the school.
Some of the governors made a recent visit to see the progress for themselves. it was hard hats and high visibility jackets all around.
The green wall below is the back part of the school housing the ‘Food Tec’ and ‘Art’ rooms. The green door is one of the classroom doors (all classrooms have a different colour door). It will eventually have a canopy over it. Within each classroom there is an area with a lower ceiling, as shown in the brick section below.
When I took the photos recently the sky was blue – however normal British summer has now resumed. For further photos of all stages of the project see here.
