Bromsgrove school benefits from expansion

The staff and pupils of Millfields First School are enjoying a brand new extension.

Work recently finished on the construction of two new classrooms, a car park extension and a new rear entrance for the Bromsgrove school.

Place Partnership managed the project on behalf of Worcestershire County Council.

The work began in August 2015 and was completed on 1 September 2016, in time for the beginning of the 2016/17 academic year.

The benefits of this extension are numerous:

- The school has now increased in size from 1 and half Form Entry to 2 Form Entry, meaning the school could take up to 300 pupils in total - a benefit to the community as pupil numbers are on the increase across Worcestershire.

- Improvement works to nearby roads mean it is easier for children and parents to walk to school, improving health and reducing congestion

- The school now has improved teaching facilities for the children and two entrances, again alleviating congestion around the school

- Outdoor play spaces have been enhanced and the Forest School area has been retained

- There are now additional car parking spaces on site for staff, to help ease the pressures of parking around the local residential area

Tracey McIntyre, project manager for the Millfields extension said: “We were delighted to project manage this build on behalf of Worcestershire County Council. The increased capacity of the school will benefit the local community for many years to come.”
