Building Development

What an exciting time for us all at Branwood School having completed Phase 1 of our Development Plan.

The rooms have all been named to recognise the contribution made by our current and former Trustees. It is through their stalwart and careful management that we can embark on this school development vision.  The rooms are Cramant Suite, Relph, Wilcox, Fletcher, Foster & Taylor.

We are now excited to share our plans for Phase 2 –  follow the link for further details Building Development Overview March 2024.

Here are some artists impressions and architect drawings of how the upper school classrooms will look.

Progress Update

It was lovely to come into school and see the progress that has been made. The new classroom has a fully fitted out teaching wall and even has a purpose built space for the piano. We are sure that you will agree that it is looking lovely and we can’t wait to use the new…

Fitting Out

The glazing for the new classroom is in and the fitting out has started. The lights have been installed on the main stairwell, and the painters are in. We can’t wait to share the new space with the children and to showcase it to you.


The lighting units are being installed in the new classroom. We can’t wait to see this stage of the development finished as it is really exciting.

Taking Shape

The new music room is taking shape. Some plastering has been done and the partitioning is in – we are just awaiting the glazing in those. It is so exciting for us to be able to view the progress and we can’t wait to use our new spaces.

Progress Update

It is so exciting to see the progress being made in the classroom space on the upper floor of the KG1 building. The partitioning has gone up and the frames for the glazing is in – we can’t wait to see the finished space.

Plywood Partitions

The plywood partitions are up and the insulation is starting to go in. The new music room is taking shape and the first fix has started. This is very exciting and we can’t wait to see the project develop and share it with you.


You will have noticed that the scaffolding has been erected at the front of the building to allow for the roof repair works to start next week. This is so very exciting as we can really start to see things changing.


The plasterboard has started being put on and the space is really taking shape. The scaffold is also going up for the new hall and dining hall roof.  


We can really see the space taking shape – The partitioning is in place and you can start to see the shape of the main classroom. This is so exciting!

Things are moving very quickly …

As you can see the partitioning has started to go up which will allow for a much more versatile space.

The Strip Out

As you can see following on from all the hard work moving – now the strip out has been started and the first things to go were the old IT Suite work benches. These were from the days when the school had desktop computers which took nearly a whole lesson to boot up!

… More Moving

It is amazing how emptying a space changes it – we are ready for the excitement to begin.

Phase 1 Preparation

It has been a very busy week in school this week as we prepare for the start of phase 1. Mrs Cracknell has been busy sorting, packing and moving with the help of Mr Martyniak, Mr Watson and some professional removers which came to school today to move the pianos and large items.
