The school, currently with 140 pupils, will see its facilities significantly expanded, creating an extra 280 places for students.
In addition to high-specification classrooms, the new building of the Church of England school will also benefit from garden and conservation areas to be used for both learning and play.
There will be a two-storey glass atrium that will host the school’s library and extra learning spaces for all school years. From the atrium, pupils and staff will be able to access the spiritual and reading garden where a mosaic will be laid, which was recently made by the children currently attending the school.
There will be trees for growing fruit to be used in the kitchens, as well as a football pitch, netball and basketball courts.
Mrs. Marks, headteacher at Frenchay Primary School, said: “We can’t wait to move to the new school; it will offer the children open and light learning spaces alongside modern classrooms.
“Outside learning has been just as important to us as the classroom in planning the design of the building. We know that all children who are enrolled at Frenchay Primary School will benefit from this open and light environment.”
Our Frenchay Park and Gardens development, with house prices starting below £200,000, comprises of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes from our Heritage Collection, which takes inspiration from the Arts and Crafts movement of the 1930s.
The development has been popular with families, professionals and retirees owing to the range of homes available as well as the excellent commuter connections to Bristol, Gloucester and Cheltenham.
Charlotte Newnes, area sales manager at our South West division, said: “We are extremely excited that Frenchay Primary School will be moving close to the development, allowing families in the area a shorter and safer school run.
“We all understand the worries that a parent has when sending their child to school but having one near the site ensures children can safely walk there, while building their independence.”
