Pupils move in at Derby High

The new infant and nursery building is now completed at Derby High School and the children have moved in.

The new two storey building containing eight classrooms and a hall also has additional outdoor learning space and houses primary pupils from pre-school to Year Two.

The project commenced in April 2015 and the steelwork went up straight after the school broke up for the summer holidays in July.  The project was completed on time ready for the move in before the end of January.

The building works were utilised by the school to learn more about the construction process.  Involved from the very start, the children helped to dig out the first few shovels of mud, made their own hanging baskets for the site office wall out of donated hard hats and also took part in a 'name the digger' competition, organised by John Dawson the Site Manager. The winning entries were: Lucky, Diggersaurus Rex and Wreckit Ralph.
