Fords of Blythe Bridge recently completed a two-class extension, enabling an outstanding primary school to offer more places to local school children.
Staff and pupils at The Mosley Academy in Anslow, Burton-on-Trent have celebrated the opening of their beautifully designed new two-classroom extension, which will enable the school to welcome more pupils through its doors from next term.
The building works carried out by Fords of Blythe Bridge have enabled this popular and thriving small village school – which has an outstanding rating from Ofsted – to expand from a five class school to a one form entry primary school and open its door to more pupils in the local area.
Luke Ford, director at Fords of Blythe Bridge commented: “The extension is a fantastic and much-needed addition to The Mosley Academy. Beautifully designed, it has created a bright, colourful and welcoming environment for new pupils at the school. It will be an invaluable addition to the school, enabling staff to deliver outstanding teaching to more pupils from the local area.
Designed with an elegant butterfly roof, brick and Western red cedar cladding and aluminium powder-coated windows, doors and rainwater goods, the extension has been sympathetically designed to blend in well with both the existing school and surrounding buildings in the rural village of Anslow.
Internally, the extension provides two new class bases with interactive white boards, integral stores, resource areas and colourful washroom areas to both rooms, as well as a shared lobby and circulation space. A bespoke acoustic pocket door gives the school the flexibility of maintaining two separate class rooms or opening up to create one single learning area.
Externally, Fords of Blythe Bridge carried out significant hard and soft landscaping works, including the creation of a new car park and pathways, soft play area, fencing and the installation of a bespoke sensory canopy.
