Fairfield Preparatory School is a class above with an 8m expansion
Fairfield Preparatory School in Loughborough is laying the foundations for an £8m expansion plan to create additional learning space and a brand new Kindergarten.
Work is underway at the school’s town centre site to develop the new facilities for children aged from three to eleven.
The state of the art development at Fairfield, part of the Loughborough Endowed Schools, will see the creation of new classrooms, a larger gymnasium, a specialist art and craft room, designated social areas and essential office space. It is scheduled to open in the next academic year.
The Kindergarten, which will have capacity for 40 children, will open in January 2016 giving the Endowed Schools the opportunity to educate pupils from three years all the way through to sixth form.
Andrew Earnshaw is the Headmaster at Fairfield. He is excited that construction has begun and is looking forward to seeing the new building take shape.
He said: “All of our pupils will benefit from the extra space we’re creating, which, combined with small class sizes and a superb range of indoor and outdoor facilities, will enable us to deliver first rate teaching.
“Our new Pre-Prep centre will be staffed and equipped to deliver outstanding early years education for the 21st century. I would encourage parents to enquire about the new Kindergarten as soon as possible, as it has already attracted a great deal of interest.”
Mr Earnshaw added: “Fairfield is a very happy and caring school which promotes traditional and family values.
“We have an enviable academic reputation both locally and nationally, but it is through sport, music, dance, drama and art that we help develop the ‘whole child’, giving them the confidence to take on the challenges of secondary education.”
