Grand opening for new county school.

A NEW school in north Warwickshire will be given the thumbs up when it officially opens next week.

Eric Wood, county education officer, will be going along to Woodside School on Tuesday for the opening ceremony.

Woodside was created following the amalgamation of the former Baddesley Ensor junior and infant schools.

The 245-pupil school is based on the old infant school site, which has now undergone extensive work, including the building of a large extension.

The new facilities include a superb library, a purpose-built music room, classrooms with storage facilities, a staff room and changing rooms for pupils, and excellent ICT facilities.

There is also better car parking and bigger playgrounds.

Headteacher Jane Lindsay said: "The staff and pupils are now settled well into our wonderful new school. We are in an area of natural beauty so this, combined with all our excellent new facilities, creates fantastic opportunities for learning.

Although the school has been up and running since September 2001 we are all looking forward to having our school officially opened by Eric Wood."

Mr Wood said: "I am absolutely delighted to be officially opening these fantastic new facilities.

"The new school has already been a great asset to pupils' educational development and will continue to ensure that children in Warwickshire are provided with the very best opportunities both now and in the future."
