CAPTION: Bishop Robert has lunch at the new school

Bishop Robert opens new church Primary School

Posted: 19th June, 2017

Bishop Robert officially opened the new school site for South Molton United CofE Primary School last week. Having previously been a Junior School, the relocation to its new site has meant the school can now serve all children from the ages of 5 to 11. This has enabled the school to offer the community a local church school for the full primary age.

The school, which will initially accommodate 210 children will eventually expand to cope with the extra housing planned for the town. As South Molton grows, so will the school. The building project started on site during the summer of 2016 and was completed in Easter 2017 with the contractor (BAM) completing on time and on budget.

The new school will provide a 21st century learning environment with new opportunities to provide the children and staff with a very rich learning resource.
