Junior School new build
25 June 2014
New building for St George’s Junior School, Weybridge
Building construction from July 2014 to January 2016 Junior School new building opens in September 2015
BUILDING work to construct a new school building at St George’s Junior School in Weybridge started in early July 2014 and is likely to last until January 2016. All of the new facilities will provide for existing pupil numbers at the Junior School rather than any expansion.
Intended specifically for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils, the new Junior School building will offer new, modern classrooms and resource areas, a dedicated IT suite, a new assembly room, new outdoor learning areas along with other features.
The new facility has been designed to be very environmentally friendly with energy efficiency and sustainability in mind and will include low energy lighting, extra insulation and materials sourced from sustainable forests. Two of the roofs will have a ‘living’ sedum cover to ensure that they blend into their natural surroundings.
As part of the work, the existing Nursery building will also be completely refurbished and modernised to the most up to date standards with a target completion date of January 2016.
Also from January 2016, the Junior School’s front car park facing onto Thames Street will include a new coach pick up and drop off zone, which is being put in place to help ease the flow of local road traffic.
Great care will be taken at all times to keep all building noise and disruption to a minimum and close liaison continues with parents and local residents, whilst anyone with any feedback or questions is very welcome to get in touch with the School.6 August 2014
