The main school building was opened in 1938 and has ten classrooms around a central courtyard which is used as an outdoor play area for younger children.
The main building also houses a nursery unit, a library and a large hall which is used for assemblies, PE, music, dance and drama.
There is an extension building with a PPA room, toilet, cloakroom and dining facilities.
The Nursery and Reception Classes have access to outdoor learning areas. There is also an outdoor playground equipped with play furniture and a quiet, sitting area, stage and pitch with soft surface for the pupils in KS 1.
All classes are in permanent, purpose built rooms and all accommodation is on the ground floor.
The school is on a shared site – Kenmore Park Junior School occupies similar accommodation on the first floor. There are strong links, both pastoral and curricular, between the two schools and most children attending the Infant School transfer to the Junior School. They are able, therefore, to benefit from the stability and continuity which these links ensure.
