Ferrars Junior School
Ferrars Infant and Nursery School was built in 1960. It was built on the same site as Ferrars Junior school, which feeds into Halyard High School. Ferrars schools were built to educate children from the Lewsey area of Luton, however, we now have children attend the school from surrounding areas too.
Ferrars Infant and Nursery School comprises of two hard standing playgrounds, with an octopus garden in the centre. We were very lucky this year to acquire the junior school's field, just off the playground, in order to extend our P.E and lunchtime activities. We also have a courtyard area in the medium of the school, known as the butterfly garden. This is particularly attractive in the summer months when children use it as an extended Reception unit. The children enjoy playing in the sand and water and enjoy taking books and jigsaws outside to play with.
In the school, we have nine classrooms and a purpose built nursery. This year we have had a new admin block and a purpose built ICT suite built. The new admin block has freed up plenty of space for three new rooms to be used when working with small groups. These are called the Rainbow Room, the Snowflake Room and the Sunshine Room. We also have a colourful Library and a spacious Hall, with lots of bright climbing equipment.
We have recently had Family Room built on the end of our nursery, which has a variety of activities throughout the weeks and terms including make and take, parent sessions and stay and play. These are all run by our family workers Mrs Nicky Steers and Miss Teresa Brimble.
The school has recently had some support from outside agencies, with regards to our pond. As you may have noticed it is now clear and the school council are working with the children within the main school on ideas for how to re-design it.
