MILTON ERNEST GETS SET TO BECOME A PRIMARY

 

Milton Ernest V.C Lower School has had a new classroom installed on site, so that the half-form entry village school can become a Primary school. At 11am on Wednesday 14 June, special guests including the Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, will take part in a viewing.

 

Cllr Henry Vann, Portfolio Holder for Education, said: “Ofsted have rated this to be a Good school and we are excited about its future. This project is part of a major programme of investment which is helping us to stay ahead of the game in providing enough school places, where communities and families need them and is helping us deliver the transition to a primary school and secondary school education system.”

 

Lisa Virnuls, Head teacher of Milton Ernest V.C Lower School (who is also the Head teacher of Eileen Wade Lower School) said: "The opening of a new classroom for Year 5 and 6 marks an important milestone in the history of our school. It is a real privilege to be able to build upon the strong foundations children of all abilities have built in our care. The new learning space will enable us to capitalise on what a small school like ours does best: a personalised education that prepares children effectively for the joy of learning so important for the next phase of their education."

 

The new build’s contractor is Kier and the architect is Lungfish.
