We are open and even more ready to learn…

Tilstock CofE Primary School and Nursery has undergone some fantastic changes in order to improve the look and infrastructure of the learning environment.

Since joining the Marches Academy Trust in December 2017, the Trust were successful in receiving a grant to make some improvements to the school that benefit the pupils, staff and visitors.

The government funding is used for new schools entering an existing Trust to spend on capital projects which address the first impression appearance, improve access arrangements, the safeguarding of pupils and staff; including perimeter fencing and IT infrastructure.

During the tender process, the Trust was delighted to work with local building contractor, Gratton Oakes and worked closely with them to meet the brief and terms of the project.

The extension to the reception area looks fantastic with its new access ramp and is welcoming to both current and perspective visitors. The perimeter fencing was installed to improve security of the whole site, alongside additional improvements inside the building to enhance safeguarding and health and safety.

A new server was installed improving the IT experience for both staff and pupils.  New Wi-Fi around the building ensures the team have good access to the Trust’s central IT systems and programmes.

To celebrate this fantastic extension and improvement of services, an official opening took place on 24th May. Local TV personality and veterinary surgeon, Steve Leonard attended to open the extension.

Staff, students, parents, carers, governors and members of the local community all attended.

Steve Leonard – Local veterinary surgeon and TV personality says “I am delighted to open this new fantastic facility at Tilstock School. The extension gives a great first impression of the school and with the additional benefits to the pupils and staff provides a great setting to learn in. It is lovely to see our local village schools becoming the school of choice for parents”

James Spicer – Head of School says “The school has continued to make positive changes since joining the Marches Academy Trust. From exploring the environment in our spacious grounds to enjoying our creative curriculum our pupils demonstrate an excellent attitude to learning. The pupils enjoy a wealth of enriching extra-curricular activities from team sports to yoga and cookery in our fantastic wraparound care. We also offer a bus service from surrounding areas making choosing the right school for pupils an even easier change to make.”
