Work is scheduled to commence from Friday 1st December in readiness for the beginning of the new academic term in January and the appointment of the new Head of School, James Spicer, and Deputy Headteacher, Kerry Goff.

Sarah Longville, CEO Marches Academy Trust, commented, “We are really excited about the developments taking place at Tilstock Primary School to meet with the educational demands of our children, the school, staff, parents and the wider community. We hope that parents and prospective parents will take the opportunity to come and visit the school to witness for themselves the improvements being made and the plans being put in place for the future.”
