Theo Paphitis opens new building

Posted on: 28 Sep 2016 by Weston Green School

What a wonderful occasion it was last Tuesday when the new building was officially opened by Mr Theo Paphitis! From humble beginnings in the 1950s and after an enthralling (and not always easy) history, it is a great sight to see the school now almost full-grown, with 200 children here and capacity for all from 3-11.

The platform for this development has been forged over a good number of years by others – notably Mrs Lucia Harvey – and today’s school site is testament to their industry, skill, dedication and faith.

Whilst I have always said that a building is simply that – a building – it is the opportunities that having this affords the children that is so exciting: already, year 3 and year 4 are settled into their new ‘home’ and the art and science departments are making the most of the space and purpose-built accommodation; the dissection of lamb’s hearts by Year 6 this last week epitomises that fresh opportunity – exciting learning, well-resourced and with expert teachers who love seeing the children learning with joyful enthusiasm.

It has therefore been a momentous week: the realisation of a long-held belief that Weston Green should have all it needs to offer that 3-11 experience and for children to thrive in this wonderful school.
