Early Years move into their brand new classroom

Joseph Clarke School's Early Years team moved into their new classroom over half term, the first new classroom to be completed as part of the substantial redevelopment work at the School.

Acting headteacher, Isobel Cox said: “It is wonderful to see the pupils and staff in our new Early Years classroom. The pupils settled in so quickly. It’s such a bright and airy room where pupils can easily move from the inside to the outside. This sets the standard for the rebuild.”

 The site looked quite different last November when work was still underway...

The interior of the classroom last November - a dark building site.
The inside of the building looked rather different
The outside last November - another building site
As did the outside area.

The next step on Joseph Clarke's redevelopment plan will see two new classrooms built. These will be the temporary home of the  Primary Department, while the Primary part of the building is being redeveloped. After that it will be the Secondary Department's turn.
