Great Bowden Academy

New Classrooms Officially Open

We had a super afternoon at our ‘opening ceremony’ to celebrate the completion of our new purpose-built double classroom building.

Revd Hils Corcoran, from Great Bowden St Peter & St Paul Church, conducted a blessing of the building, followed by Stef Edwards, Learn-At Trust Leader and Executive Trustee, ‘cutting the ribbon’ and officially opening the new classrooms.

We are delighted to announce the new building will be called ‘Bowden Lodge’, whilst the main building of the school will be called ‘The Great Building’.

The event hosted some ‘friends of the school’ such as our wonderful volunteers, school governors and ex-pupils, along with the whole school to watch the blessing and opening ceremony.

Executive Headteacher, Sarah Bishop, said,
We are thrilled with these new facilities. The classrooms are wonderful spaces for learning and are a much-needed resource replacing a very dated mobile building. Staff have worked hard to set them up ready for the new term and the children have already settled in well to their new working environment. We could not be more pleased and know these new learning spaces will help our children to flourish

We hope you managed to take the tour of the new building for yourselves at the event and see for yourselves why we are so chuffed with this excellent new learning space.
