Excited pupils and staff move into new £4.6m school in Highbridge

A new £4.6m school in Highbridge was opened to pupils for the first time this week as they started the new school year.

The new 420-pupil Churchfield Primary School in Highbridge has opened after a year-long construction project.

Wendy Nelder, Head Teacher, told "Watching the children come to school on the first morning was an absolute pleasure - the air was full of excitement!"

"We are all thrilled to be in such a fantastic building with wonderful facilities. We feel very privileged to be the first occupants of this state-of-the-art building and know that it will greatly benefit the children and community in which we serve."

"When asked, the children said the building was awesome and cool! We have even more to look forward to as our grounds will be transformed into a wonderful outdoor space for the children to play and learn. We all wish to say a huge thank you to Somerset County Council and the building company Vinci for providing us with such a lovely school."
