Wingfield Primary School marked the official opening of their new school building on Friday 23rd March, with a special concert performed by pupils from across all year groups.
Julie Taylor, Head of School Improvement, welcomed everyone to the new school building and said: “Today is an important day in the history of Wingfield Primary School and I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in turning what was once a dream into a reality. Our main focus here is the pupil’s education and this new school will provide the perfect environment for them to learn.”
Following the concert, head teacher Ross Silcock gave a tour of the building to a number of guests who attended, including Clive Efford, MP, Tracey Russell, Senior Assistant Director of Inclusion, Learning and Achievement and David Brown, a Berkeley Group Director.
Clive Efford, MP, engaged with a number of pupils during the tour and said: “It is amazing to be here today and see this new school building open. A lot of people have been involved in this project and you cannot help but be inspired when walking around the fantastic classrooms and seeing the children so engaged in their learning.”
Wingfield Primary School is going from strength to strength and in September will accept another 30 pupils. Headteacher Ross Silcock said: “I am so proud to be headteacher at such an incredible school and I cannot wait for more and more pupils to experience the amazing facilities and the outstanding teaching and learning that happens every day.”
