Grappenhall Heys Community Primary

Stansfield Drive, Grappenhall Heys, Warrington, Cheshire

Grappenhall Heys Community Primary School is the first brand new school to have been built by Warrington Borough Council in September 2001. The architects were Parsons Brinckerhoff and the builders were Harry Fairclough Construction Ltd.

Pleasant learning environment

The bright and spacious school building is surrounded by trees, curved walking paths, block paved areas and attractive planting creating a pleasant learning environment. The building itself benefits from eight semi-open plan teaching areas with each department sharing an area for technology and creative activities. The cross-shaped building is centred on the large hall. The school has access to a computer suite and library which are also intended for community use. School meals are cooked on site in the school kitchen. Each department has its own hard core playing area as well as extensive grounds and playing areas. The school also benefits from its own amphitheatre which can be used for outdoor performances.

Future development plans

The large outdoor space has a football pitch, adventure playground and running track. Furthermore, plans are being developed for the grounds to include gardens, sculpture trail and water feature. It is currently compatible to hold 210 pupils plus 52 part-time nursery pupils, however with future development plans to each wing of the building the additional space will allow for a total of 420 pupils to be accommodated for. There are also plans to build a Community Learning Centre.
