PROGRESS is being made at a new primary school set to be built in Wellington.

Isambard Kingdom Brunel Primary School is set to be open in September 2020 under the Castle Partnership Trust.

It will serve the community in Longforth Farm and the surrounding area.

The new headteacher will be appointed in October, ready to take up the post in the New Year.

Two information evenings are taking place on Thursday, September 26 at 6pm at Court Fields School, and Thursday October 3 at Wellington Baptist Church, also at 6pm.

Sarah Watson, executive headteacher of the trust, said: “We are an innovative and forward-thinking trust and we are always striving to find ways to develop and strengthen our schools.

"We look forward to welcoming IKB’s first Reception pupils in September.”

These information events will give parents the opportunity to ask any questions they may have and to gather more information about the school and what is on offer.
