Water Meadows Primary School selected for government’s ambitious school rebuilding project

We are thrilled to announce that Water Meadows Primary School has been selected by the government as part of the school rebuilding programme. The programme, which carries out major rebuilding and refurbishment projects at school and sixth-form college buildings across England, has included Water Meadows in its latest announcement of schools who will benefit from renovation projects.

The new buildings at Water Meadows Primary School will be more energy efficient and net-zero in operation, providing a modern and sustainable education environment for our pupils. The rebuilding project will include the construction of new classrooms, sports halls, and dining rooms, replacing old facilities.

The news comes at a transformative time to the growing school on the outskirts of Canterbury, after being named as the #1 Best Primary School in Kent by snode.co.uk.

Further information about the School rebuilding programme can be found on the Government’s website.

Education is a top priority for this Government. That is why, despite facing challenging economic circumstances, we are investing a record amount in our schools and colleges. Today’s announcement will transform hundreds of schools across the country and ensure they are fit for the future.

Tommy Cullen, Chief Operating Officer for The Stour Academy Trust said:

We are thrilled to be a part of the school rebuilding programme and look forward to welcoming our pupils to the new, modern facilities at Water Meadows Primary School. This project will not only provide a more energy efficient and sustainable environment for our students to learn in, but it will also ensure that our school is fit for the future. We are grateful to the government for their commitment to investing in education and for including Water Meadows Primary School in this transformative programme.
