Building work at Sandbrook

Building work for our new 4 classroom extension has now started!  As you are aware as from September 2016 Sandbrook became a 3 form entry school.  We currently have 19 classes spread over Reception to Year 6 and eventually all years will have 3 classes. This will ensure that the current and future pupils of Sandbrook will have a clean, safe and first class educational setting in which to learn.

The build will take around 6 months to complete and when finished it will be a further addition to our beautiful building, which offers children at Sandbrook Community Primary school, one of the best educational environments in the borough.

There pages will take you on a visual journey of the build through every stage, so parents and pupils are able to see just what goes into a build like this!

Here is a drawing of what the completed classrooms will look like.  The first is a view from the playground and the second the view from Hartley Lane.
