Schools Expand and Complete Refurbishment Work Across the Trust, Ready for the New Academic Year
It is with great pleasure that we handed the keys to our new building at Gorton Primary School at the end of May, ready for children to move into their new classrooms in September. The new build will provide our infant classes the chance to learn in a state of the art building alongside their classmates and new joiners, who have been working from mobile classrooms since the school opened in 2018.
We are very excited to fill their new learning space with exciting resources, from their new library to their dance studio. Take a look at this article in the Manchester Evening News for more details about the new build at Gorton and pupil admissions:
At the outstanding SS Simon and Jude CE Primary, work has now begun to transform the school by adding a third class in Reception, Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6, ready for the larger intake in September. Our CEO, Simon Bramwell said of the expansion: ‘given the shortage of school places in the area, we have been delighted to help Bolton Council by facilitating the expansion and will continue to work with them to provide this opportunity for local families. Our staff are very much looking forward to welcoming our new children in September.’
School Principal, Katie Jones, added ‘we welcome enquiries from parents and carers looking to take advantage of the expansion to our school, which has previously been over-subscribed, and send their children to SS Simon and Jude for a new start in the next academic year.’ You can get in touch with the school directly to discuss admissions and can read more about the expansion in the following article:
