Our KS2 building is officially open!

Over the summer, our school underwent a major transformation, as a new building was purpose built for our new cohort of Year 5 and 6 pupils.  

To celebrate this expansion we held a special event to officially open the building. We welcomed the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, Thay Thayalan, and Charis Penfold, Director of Education Services at Achieving for Children, to school for some live music performances followed by the official cutting of the blue ribbon! 

Guests were given a tour of the new building, which was adorned with festive decorations, and pupils held a Christmas market selling fantastic handmade gifts and goodies. 

Pupils did a fantastic job manning their stalls and happily spoke to the guests about what they have been doing at school. Well done to everyone involved, it was a fantastic event!

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
