Firbeck Academy’s Build a Future day helps to celebrate new school


July 8th, 2016

Teachers and pupils at Firbeck Academy are getting ready to move into their new classrooms with a specially themed building day.

Youngsters at the school, in Firbeck Road, Wollaton took part in building themed activities such as painting involving building perspectives inspired by artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser, computer-aided building design and a Stomp-style dance.

The events were planned to help children at the school prepare for changes to the school due to building work which has taken place over the last year and is due to complete at the end of this month.

Renovation work began after the Nottingham University Samworth Academy (NUSA) Trust, which supports the school, contributed the money along with funding from the Education Funding Agency.

Work includes new insulated roofs and walls for many of the school buildings — providing warmer classrooms, better ventilation and a better learning environment for Firbeck’s 200 pupils.

Repairs have also been made to the nursery block roof and new boundary fencing, to allow greater use of the school grounds.

Jason Osprey, Headteacher of Firbeck Academy, said: “There is an incredible sense of excitement as the building work evolves and we look forward to welcoming our pupils back to their new school in September. Firbeck has and is undergoing a period of change and improvement at the moment and this is perfectly symbolised by the regeneration work of the new building.”

Firbeck Primary School became an academy in July 2013 when it joined the NUSA Trust.
