Farley Hill Primary School Keys Handed Over In Readiness To Open
Keys for the new Farley Hill Primary School site in Arborfield have been handed over to its headteacher. Emma Clarke and her team are gearing up to open the new school site next month, after construction was completed on the new school earlier this summer.
Open In September
All the modules for the buildings are now in place and are fitted out ready for staff and students ahead of pupils arriving in September. Hundreds of young people will be able to make the most of the new facilities, with space to expand for more than 600 pupils as and when it is needed.
The inclusive buildings contain generous classrooms, specialist areas for design and food technology, PE and dance, and provides the latest digital teaching tools such as interactive teaching screens and sound systems. Relocating Farley Hill Primary School addresses deficiencies in the current Farley Hill accommodation and will reduce traffic congestion caused at the start and end of the school day.
Cllr Graham Howe, executive member for children’s services, said: “It’s a great pleasure for us to hand over the keys to this fantastic new facility to Farley Hill Primary School. I’m sure the hundreds of students who will be starting the new school year there over the next few weeks will be delighted with what it has to offer and will only continue to benefit hundreds more in the years ahead.”
Emma Clarke, headteacher at Farley Hill Primary School, said: “We are delighted with our new school building and the excellent facilities. Farley Hill school will continue to provide an excellent education and help the children to develop academically and as people. We look forward to being part of the Arborfield Green community.”
The school was built by modular construction specialists Reds10. The modules were built at the company’s factory in Yorkshire before being transported to site and lifted into place. This has been completed is stages throughout the project.
