It’s going to be a very exciting year at Corsham Primary Broadwood in Rudloe, Corsham, with work underway for the creation of six new classes.

Months have been spent designing, preparing and planning the new wing, with the new classrooms due to be ready for pupils in September 2019.

“Over the current academic year we shall see the class space grow to nearly twice its capacity in order to provide the spaces needed for the children forecast to move into Corsham with the new housing development,” explained head of school Kerry Parker.

“The builders have become part of the Corsham Primary family, understanding that whilst the building is being created, the teaching and learning must continue. While the children are not allowed on site at present, they are learning all about the foundations of buildings. Then once the floor is in place, we hope to arrange site visits, complete with hard hats and hi-viz jackets.”

The new extension will see Corsham Primary Broadwood increase in size from a one form entry to two classes per year group.

“We look forward to welcoming more children and families to our vibrant and stimulating setting, and to continue being at the heart of the community,” added Kerry.
