A village primary school has officially opened its doors on a £1 million extension project.

The Priors School at Priors Marston saw the extension opened on Saturday last week.

As part of the options available to the free school is a new classroom, library and a brand new hall with gym facilities and a brand new kitchen.

A corridor linking the new building with the original Victorian school dating from 1847 has also been built.

The school is delighted with the enhanced and bigger capacity.

Headteacher Gary Murrell said: “This is a much more comfortable environment for all of our pupils.

“There are also many improved facilities for them and these will benefit the education of the children enormously.

“The nice thing is that we will be able to attract extra children into the nursery for which there are still spaces available.

“However we can also extend the school’s catchment area and attract pupils from the surrounding area such as Daventry, Southam and Woodford Halse.

“The opening was a way of letting the community see what we have on offer.”

The work on the project was finished at the end of September and the school is now pressing ahead with another project.

Mr Murrell said: “We have teamed up with The Hollybush in Priors Marston and we will be growing fruit and vegetables for them to use in 
the pub. They will then be using them in the hot meals that we then provide for the children.”
