Friarage School has undergone a major transformation to introduce a raft of modern facilities while maintaining its traditional appearance.

The centrepiece of the work, which took around a year-and-a-half, is The Hub, which houses a new library, staff room and conference facilities.

The school hosted an open day, welcoming more than 300 people to enjoy the changes, with deputy headteacher Cheryl Cappleman hailing the work a great success.

She said: “The whole school has been refurbished but we have managed to keep a lot of the original features.

“The children and staff were fantastic throughout the process and we have now got some absolutely fantastic buildings.

“The people who came on the day were very impressed and appreciated just how lovely it must be for the children to learn in this new environment.

“We also had a former teacher Mrs Bayes who had written her memories down, and we had a DVD set up for people to record their experiences at the school too.

“It was a really nice day.”
