Junior School New Build: 'THE ARK'
- Junior School New Building ‘THE ARK’ opened autumn 2015
- New look Nursery for girls and boys rising three and upwards opened in September 2016
‘THE ARK’ at St George’s Junior School, Weybridge opened in autumn 2015.
Specifically for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils, THE ARK offers new, modern classrooms and resource areas, a dedicated IT suite, a new assembly room, new outdoor learning areas along with other features.
The Junior School’s existing Nursery building is also being completely refurbished to the most up to date standards and is planned to open in spring 2016.
In addition, the Junior School’s front car park facing onto Thames Street now includes a new coach pick up and drop off zone, which has been put in place to help ease the flow of local road traffic.
Now built, the new, environmentally friendly facilities provide for existing pupil numbers rather than any expansion.
