We are at a very exciting time in the life of Marjory Kinnon School. In March 2018 we moved into a brand new, purpose built, £30 million school building which offers state-of-the-art facilities to our pupils and enables us to become a three form entry school for children aged four to 16 (Early Years to Key Stage 4).
Our pupil numbers will rise steadily over the next few years and at capacity we will have 288 pupils, making us one of the largest SEND schools in the country. Our former school is being demolished and the site will eventually become our new school playing fields.
Our new building incorporates fully fitted subject rooms for science, art, food technology, music and a library. There are dedicated sensory rooms and a therapy suite to support the additional needs of our pupils. A life skills room will enable us to teach independent living skills to our Key Stage 3 and 4 pupils.
The whole school will benefit from our large, dedicated sports hall and two separate dining rooms for Primary and Secondary pupils. The Primary dining room includes a break out area for Early Years lunches, enabling us to provide extra support to our youngest children in the first stage of their independent school career.
The outside space provides amazing new benefits and opportunities for our school community and includes dedicated outdoor teaching space. Early Years pupils have their own specially designed play space. The Primary area includes a sensory garden, a cycle track, a football pitch and an active area with swings, a climbing frame and sunken trampolines. The Secondary outside space has a more mature feel with outdoor gym equipment and pop up table tennis, a 4G football pitch, a reflections garden for quieter lunchtimes and an Eco Garden to promote an interest in horticulture. We will also have access to a grass playing field located on our site and incorporating full size football pitches.
