Warren Wood Community Primary School in Gainsborough has celebrated its official opening.

Lady Sarah McCorquodale officially opened the new state-of-the-art primary school.

Warren Wood caters for children with special educational needs, for 96 pupils aged 2-11 and complements the Aegir Community School which provides for secondary aged students with special educational needs.

Top notch facilities include 12 classrooms, specialist teaching areas including music and drama, school hall, dining room and kitchen, library, and an IT suite.

Pupils also have access to a purpose-built therapy suite including a sensory room, soft play, medical suite, physiotherapy department and a speech and language room.

Executive Councillor for Children’s Services Patricia Bradwell said: “This is a tremendous addition to our special needs provision and gives local children and the community a superb school facility.”

“The school has been built very much with the environment in mind following good practice guidelines for lighting, insulation, heating and ventilation.”

Coun Bradwell added: “I look forward to seeing the school go from strength to strength in the future.”

Following Lady Sarah McCorquodale’s ceremony, Rebecca Andrews officially opened a memorial garden sited in the grounds of Warren Wood Community School in memory of her late husband Paul Andrews. The commemorative bench and sundial were kindly donated by the contractor, Kier and Mouchel Business Services of Lincoln where Mr Andrews was employed as the Sites and Property Development Manager.

Executive Principal of the Gainsborough Federation Karen Gittins added:

“Mr Andrews played a vital role in securing excellent educational facilities for Warren Wood Community School and many other schools within Lincolnshire.”
