On Tuesday 5th December The Worshipful the Mayor of the London Borough of Barnet accompanied with the Mayoress carried out the official Ground Breaking Ceremony of Ashmole Primary School.
This is the start of the construction of the brand new two form entry school at Ashmole Primary which will be delivered by Morgan Sindall, the construction and infrastructure company. The building will provide a new permanent home for Ashmole Primary School. It will create 420 pupil places from Reception up to Year 6. The new school is based on the same site as the very successful Ashmole Academy. The Primary School will have very close links to the existing Secondary Academy, sharing teachers, facilities and preparing pupils for the step on to secondary education. The new building is due to complete in 2018.
The children will be able to enjoy the excellent facilities set up for their use. The creation of the modern and permanent building will allow Ashmole Primary to fulfil their vision to provide the very best standards in education for all their children. The new building will allow the school to deliver a broad, balanced and creative curriculum with many extra-curricular activities on offer.
The children are all looking forward to learning and playing in the new building. Everyone associated with the school will be thrilled and very proud with the new learning environment.
Neil Franklin, area director at Morgan Sindall, said: “We are so pleased to have been appointed to deliver the new Ashmole Primary School, which will create a contemporary learning environment to serve future generations in Southgate.
“The new primary school building forms a key part of the wider plans to create a centre of educational excellence and we’re delighted to be marking the start of work on this fantastic facility for school users and the community. We look forward to working closely with the wider project team and the school as we progress with this exciting project.”
