WESTBURY Junior School has been given the green light to start building a new extension, replacing two old mobile classrooms with four new attached classrooms and additional toilet facilities.
The planned improvements (reported in White Horse News 483, dated 17th March 2011), have now been granted planning permission by Wiltshire Council. The extension will allow the school to become a base for the Extended Schools Services for Westbury and Warminster, which had previously been based at Kingdown School in Warminster.
It is a project that the school, which has around 225 pupils, has been hoping for a long time. The layout will enable the new classrooms to be accessed from extending the existing school corridors and will provide a sheltered courtyard space, which can be used as a secure external teaching space. Each classroom will have its own wet area, cloaks and store.
