"Long-term asset": Tunstall C of E Primary School

THE 220 pupils at Tunstall C of E Primary School, in Kent, moved out of their 19th-century school building at the start of the Easter holidays, and began the new term this month in a new £7-million school designed for them by Canterbury diocesan architects.

The head teacher, Kathryn Hutchings, said that the school had far outgrown the original Grade II listed building, and pupils had been largely housed in mobile classrooms.

The school, rated “Outstanding” by OFSTED, will now expand, and expects to double its size over the next six years. The architect, David Gullick, said that the new school would be a long-term asset for the village.
