The Nursery, Infant and Primary School area of Cambridge International School at Cherry Hinton Hall is currently undergoing a £3.5 million redevelopment. This work is due to be finished by the end of the year, so for one term the school is moving Years 1 - 6 to the School's premises at 61 Bateman Street. This site includes bright spacious classrooms, which provide a wonderful learning environment and will ensure continuity in the education provided by the School. The premises also has a safe area in which the children can play at the rear of the building.
The Nursery and Reception classes will remain at Cherry Hinton Hall as their area in the School has been completed, allowing them to start benefiting from the improved facilities.
The exciting development at Cherry Hinton Hall underlines Cambridge International School's long-term commitment to its pupils and parents, to deliver excellent facilities and provide a truly 21st century education. Once complete it will provide a beautiful, modern and light setting in which children will thrive. The unique location of the School in Cherry Hinton Park, as well as the new landscaping and refurbishment of Cherry Hinton Hall will provide the opportunity to expand our outdoor learning programmes and Forest School curriculum, which will enhance our pupils’ learning and development. The School will have a new central enclosed early learning courtyard which will provide a fun activity space for the school’s youngest pupils, linking closely with the internal teaching spaces, and outdoor room for covered learning. A new ‘Giants Garden’ linked to Cherry Hinton Brook will offer opportunities for children to extend their learning from the library to the outside to ensure that the redeveloped school integrates into Cherry Hinton Park. The improved teaching and learning spaces will provide contemporary and inspiring environments, whilst retaining the unique historical character and setting of the school.
Mrs Philippa Mills, Principal, commented "The temporary move to Bateman Street will ensure that all the work is completed safely and we are appreciative of how supportive the parents and staff have been in the temporary relocation. We are committed to providing the best education possible to the children here and are looking forward to welcoming the children to Bateman Street for the first term of the academic year."
