STAFF and pupils at Bromsgrove’s Chadsgrove School have been celebrating the official opening of two new classrooms.
The project was funded by Worcestershire County Council and the Arden Construction designed them and carried out the building work.
The classrooms are purpose built to support children with profound and multiple learning difficulties, offering plenty of space and with ceiling tracking for hoists.
The space also hosts a new bathroom management area and space for the storage of equipment.
The outside area has been beautifully landscaped allowing wheelchair access to the grounds and the school.
Arden also fully involved the school in every step of the build and the children got to design pictures which were used around the site on huge panel boards to keep the grounds looking lovely throughout the process.
The company also funded a time capsule which has been buried on the site under a sundial – it contained something momentous from every class and a photograph of the three headteachers who have led the school over the last 40 years.
David Nicholas ran it from 1976 to 1990, Richard Aust from 1990 to 2009 and Deb Rattley, the current head who has been there since 2009.
A school spokesperson told The Standard: “We are delighted with the new build as the children now have the much-needed space for their lessons and activities. The children and staff are delighted with the classrooms and have settled in beautifully.”
