Welcome back to the new school year!
I am delighted to be able to share some very exciting news with all of our families at the such an early stage of the term; Crest Nicholson have confirmed that the construction work on the new Hunts Grove School site began this week, with a build programme to July 2019. As a school we will then require a period of time to install the IT equipment and set the school up but we are hoping that much of this can run concurrently with the final stages of the build. We will be keeping in close contact with the contractors, Willmott Dixon, regarding on-going progress and we are hoping to be able to share a monthly communication update (prepared by Willmott Dixon) which will be available to parents and residents of Hunts Grove.
In addition to this, I am also pleased to report that the planned works to create the additional accommodation for Hunts Grove (at Waterwells) have been completed and that all of the four classes are now based in the same area of the school. The children also have access to a very good sized communal space which will be used for assemblies, dining and some PE lessons. The garden pod has a designated office which is where Mr Philcox is based. The children will continue to share the playground with the Waterwells children.
