CAMBRAI PRIMARY SCHOOL OPEN EVENT: DECEMBER 3, 2018
Cambrai Primary School in Catterick is holding a community open event on Monday December 3 for people who want to find out more about what the new school has to offer.
Part of Lingfield Education Trust, Cambrai is set to open in September 2019 on Catterick Road, the site previously occupied by Darlington College. It is being extensively renovated and transformed, internally and externally, to create first class education accommodation and an outdoor learning environment.
The open event will take place at Catterick Leisure Centre on Monday December 3 2018, at 11am – 12.30pm and 6pm – 7.30pm.
Mark Dent, executive head at Cambrai Primary School, said: “Cambrai is a school for the whole community and we welcome everyone along who wants to find out more about the school, the building and our team. At Cambrai, pupils will receive a high-quality teaching experience through an exciting curriculum and our focus will be on children feeling safe and nurtured. We will be using our space to help children reach their full potential, with learning in classrooms, outdoors, via class trips, through ICT and play.
“Cambrai’s leadership team is adopting an inclusive, family approach to school life and promoting high aspirations for children, regardless of background – academically, socially, through sports and the arts.”
The school is part of Lingfield Education Trust which won the bid for the new school after a shortage of primary school places was identified in the area. With the population of Catterick Garrison set to rise over the next few years, a large-scale building programme of new housing developments is taking place in the area.
