Brand new classrooms for school in Titchfield

Portsmouth school launches postcard art project

Have your say

A TEMPORARY classroom at a Titchfield school, is to be replaced with two new classrooms.

Titchfield Primary School will have the new classrooms ready for the summer term in 2014.

Hampshire County Council has agreed to spend £496,000 on the school’s extension.

Councillor Peter Edgar, executive member for education at the council, said: ‘From the information I have considered, and a visit I have made to the school, I am satisfied that the temporary classroom situation at the school is unsatisfactory and not sustainable.

‘Accommodating the pupils in permanent classrooms will provide a brighter and much more comfortable environment for them to be taught in, helping them to get the most out of their education.’

Work to build the new classrooms will start this summer.

The temporary classrooms will remain in use until the new classrooms are available and the school will operate as normal during the construction period.
