Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A PRI­MARY school in Uxbridge cel­e­brated the launch of their new fa­cil­i­ties.

Her­mitage Pri­mary, in Bel­mont Road, of­fi­cially opened their new school build­ing on Wed­nes­day, July 1.

The Deputy Mayor of Hilling­don John Hens­ley was joined by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of lo­cal ed­u­ca­tion, health and so­cial care, sports groups and busi­nesses at the event.

Head teacher Ms An­drea Fricker said: “The last two years have been a real chal­lenge, as we have ex­panded to a two-form en­try school, while the new school has been built around us.

“Yet dur­ing that time we have con­tin­ued to pro­vide ex­cit­ing ed­u­ca­tion for our chil­dren, se­cured a ‘good’ Of­sted rat­ing and achieved Key Stage 2 re­sults that are in the top 10 per cent of the coun­try.

“We now have a stun­ning new build­ing and fa­cil­i­ties fit for the 21st cen­tury.”

The open­ing in­cluded re­fresh­ments, meet­ing the school gover­nors, pupils and staff and a ren­di­tion from the choir.
