Also en route are new changing rooms, main entrance and glass-fronted reception, as well as office space, toilets, circulation space, a covered playground and internal improvements to the existing buildings. One of the main features of the project is a new early years learning classroom and enhanced facilities that will provide a free flow between the indoor and outdoor play areas.
The building replaces the existing Junior School hall, with new access from Ashdell Road, meaning the new facilities will also be more suitable for private hire.
Situated at the heart of Broomhill, careful and thoughtful design has created a space that sits comfortably within the existing site and is also sympathetic to our acclaimed Forest School learning space. Mr Hicks, Headmaster explained:
“With 390 pupils ranging from Pre-School age to Year 11, and more than 50 members of staff, we’re delighted that construction is now underway to accommodate our growing numbers. We are receiving record numbers of enquiries from families both in Sheffield and the Peak District. This new development will make Westbourne even more attractive, giving us the space to develop our central policy of small classes and personal support for every pupil.”
