Pupils enjoy benefits of improvements to schools
6:31pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
Children at two County Durham schools are enjoying new facilities following the completion of the latest phase of major building projects.
Work at Wellfield School, in Wingate, and Whitworth Park School, Spennymoor, was finished on schedule in time for the start of the new school year.
At Wellfield School there is a new extension and new frontage to the school and the existing accommodation has been substantially remodelled.
Improvement work at Whitworth Park School, which includes an extension and refurbishment to existing buildings, marks the completion of the merger of the former Spennymoor and Tudhoe Grange schools.
Councillor Ossie Johnson, cabinet member for children and young people's services at Durham County Council, said: "I am delighted that these major building projects have been completed in time for the new school year.
"I am sure the new facilities at these schools will prove to be of enormous benefit to pupils now and for many years to come."
Further refurbishment will be carried out at both schools, with the projects due to be finalised next year.
