We are very excited to be preparing for a move to a new school. Tiverton School is being rebuilt on the site of the former Alice Stevens School on a campus with Whitley Abbey Primary School and is due to open in spring term 2018. We are delighted to be working in partnership with Whitley Abbey Primary School for some excellent and exciting shared opportunities for our school communities.
We look forward also to getting to know our local community in Whitley and hope they will be regular visitors at events in our school; we hope they will also become familiar with our children whose enhanced learning opportunities will take them out into the local neighbourhood.
All children and staff have now visited the new school and are very excited - the most frequent response is “I can’t believe how big it is!” The opportunities will be fantastic, not only in having a beautifully designed new building, but also in the additional facilities of a library, pool, creative arts space, sensory room, sensory integration room, cookery room and lots of additional flexible spaces. The children are looking forward to having an outdoor learning space attached to each classroom and 2 additional classes for the additional 18 children who will be joining our school.
We are working closely with Coventry City Council, IDP Architects and Farrans contractors to plan a school which will offer the very best opportunities to the Tiverton pupils, families and staff. The school communities will be included in planning some exciting events for our journey from the existing school in Coundon to the new site in Whitley. As part of this process we will be celebrating some wonderful memories and achievements in our old school, and looking forward to beginning the exciting process of making memories in Whitley.
Thank you to the pupils from Whitley Abbey for completing a blog to update on the progress of our new school. You can view the blog here
