Kilnwood Vale Primary School celebrates their official opening

Kilnwood Vale Primary School was officially opened on Thursday 28th November.



The opening of the new school was celebrated by the key partners who were integral in getting the project delivered, including Crest Nicholson, Willmott Dixon, members of the Council and GLF schools, which is a Multi-Academy Trust made up of 40 schools.

Jo Newton, Executive Head Teacher, Natalie Broad from GLF and Andrew Dobson from Crest Nicholson all spoke of their aspirations for the school’s future. Jo Newton gave guests a tour of the school and morning tea and there was also an official cake cutting and ribbon cutting with some of the children outside the school.

Kilnwood Vale Primary School is home to more than two hectares of open space including a football pitch, multi-use game areas and extensive playing fields. The school also features a dedicated wildlife area, including a pond and wildflower meadow for the children to enjoy learning and leisure activities.

The school is set back from the road, offering easy drop-off access and parking, giving parents in Kilnwood Vale peace of mind that their children’s safety and wellbeing has been carefully considered. Both the school and associated nursery are designed with Kilnwood Vale’s growing community in mind.

Andrew Dobson, Managing Director of Crest Nicholson Strategic Projects, commented:

“The official opening celebration of Kilnwood Vale Primary School marked an important milestone for the growing local community of Faygate. Since the first day of term in September to now, it has been remarkable to see the school community develop and thrive, with the facilities at the school being well received and already put to good use. As a developer, we pride ourselves on delivering the infrastructure needed to make a community flourish.” 

Russell Miller, Director of Willmott Dixon, said:

“It has been great to see the children, teachers and key people gathered to enjoy the new Kilnwood Vale Primary School. We’ve enjoyed working in partnership with Crest Nicholson to deliver a new school for the local Faygate community and seeing the children at today’s celebration interacting was a sure sign of how prosperous it will be in the years to come.”

GLF Schools CEO, Jon Chaloner, added: “We are delighted to mark the official opening of Kilnwood Vale Primary School.  Our mission at GLF Schools is to be a supportive family of schools where together we grow, learn and flourish and we are very pleased to see that our children and colleagues have settled so quickly and happily into their exceptional new surroundings.”
