Cheltenham: Work Starts On Expanding School
Work has started on making a Cheltenham Primary school even bigger.
Lakeside Primary will need to find room for another 210 children as the population continues to grow in the town.
The work includes building a brand new nine classroom teaching block, school hall and support facilities which will grow the school from 420 places to 630 places.
There will also be a new multi use games area and a brand new kitchen and the work is expected to be completed in December this year.
Cllr Paul McLain, cabinet member for children and young people and commissioning said: "I'm pleased that the county council is expanding this popular school. With demand growing for school places in this part of town we're ensuring as many local families as possible can send their children there."
Headteacher, Hayley Hutchison, said: "Our school is popular with local parents and this expansion means we'll be able to welcome more local children to our fantastic school and support them to reach their potential."
