The primary school has now become the first dual-site school in North Somerset, with students still being taught at its site in Hewish and more classes being added to a brand new building in Scot Elm Drive in West Wick.

The school’s headteacher Lisa Dadds said: “The children of West Wick reception class are pleased and excited to start the next part of their learning journey at our new site.

“Parents and staff are impressed with how adaptable our children are as they have settled in incredibly well.

Pupils from one of the school’s reception classes were bussed from West Wick to Hewish for the first school term while work was being completed on the site but now the students can enjoy the impressive school site.

Some of the new building’s key features include a new kitchen, huge hall, specially designed learning street corridor with large open windows, lots of storage space and a design which enables lessons to spill out from classrooms and be taught in the corridor.

Mrs Dadds said: “We are all looking forward to continuing as a Foundation Stage learning unit across our two sites.”
