The Old School House is a Grade II listed building on the banks of the river Thames in Cricklade dating back to 1860. As its name suggests it was a purpose-built school for the Cricklade community, for over 100 years. In 1994 it was modernized and refurbished and has since been used as offices.
Wiltshire Council has now granted planning permission for Meadowpark to open a new independent school for boys and girls aged 4 – 11 years in the Old School House from September 2010.
Meadowpark has been providing care and education for children from the age of 3 months upwards for the last 15 years.
Head teacher, Rajvinder Kular said, "We are pleased the Old School House will once again become a school for young children. The building has retained many of its original features and the beautiful grounds and private woodland will provide a safe and inspiring environment for outdoor learning.
"We have a well-earned reputation for high standards and for our ability to recognize and develop the potential of each child who attends Meadowpark. The Old School House will provide continuity for the next phase of education from 4-11 years."
On show on Saturday 13 March when both the new Meadowpark School and the Nursery will be open for visits. For more information, telephone 01793 752600.
