Happiness abounded at the brand new school built in the centre of the 700 home Ridgeway Farm development on the north western edge of Swindon, in Wiltshire, in early September.
The single form entry primary run by the Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust opened with 80 children and twelve members of staff, with more pupils arriving every day.
As children are being accepted in all years, the school is providing places for families from areas where schools are full. Deputy headteacher Laura Gibbard said: “We have a lot of children from Tadpole Farm in North Swindon where our sister school is full and expanding one year group at a time. Children are being taught in mixed age classes; as they’re in small groups they’re receiving a lot of attention.
“Our first weeks have been wonderful; we’re building a lovely school at the centre of a growing community.”
The Bishop of Bristol, the Right Reverend Mike Hill, will formally open the school with his blessing on Thursday 22 September.
