BROMHAM C OF E LOWER SCHOOL GETS TWO NEW PERMANENT
Bromham C of E Lower School’s new building was
opened by the Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, on Friday 30
January, as part of the borough’s Temporary Classroom Replacement
The school is on two sites and had an old
temporary unit on each site. These have been replaced with a new
permanent building with two classes on the Village Road site.
Kier have been the contractor and worked with
the school and local Village Hall to install the classes on site by
access through the village recreation area.
The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson,
said: “We are investing heavily to ensure all children are able to
benefit from being taught in permanent accommodation which supports
local schools such as Bromham C of E Lower School to deliver high
quality teaching and learning. This project is a result of
effective working between the school and the Council, and I hope
generations of local children will enjoy learning in this new
building for many years to come.”
Head teacher of Bromham C of E Lower School,
Virginia Gilks, said: “The two new classroom units are a welcome
addition to the school bringing much-needed space. The children
loved seeing the building as it developed, especially as there was
plenty of crane action. The new rooms offer a comfortable and
spacious learning environment for our year one children and we are
all very pleased with the end result.”
This is one of nine projects that are being
delivered by Kier in phase one of the programme with five completed
and four currently underway with completion dates due between now
and the end of February 2015.
Bedford Borough Council designed a programme
that invests more than £12million over the 3 phases.
