Tour

Mellor Primary School’s current building was opened in 1995 in time to celebrate the School’s centenary.

In 2011, after some twenty months of planning, we completed work on the new building project that has provided new classrooms for Class 5 and our Early Years children and re-structured some of the classroom areas.  We are delighted with our new space which provides discrete areas for our different activities, reducing interruptions and noise levels and creating a generally calmer environment.

Extension 2015 and grounds development plan

Throughout 2014-15 our school changed significantly. Two new, colourful toilet blocks were created; a wonderful new school library was built; our hall was extended into a fabulous facility for performances and sport as well as lunchtimes and assemblies; additional work spaces were developed to enhance teaching and learning; a boot room for wellies and covered canopy area now help us with our Forest School work and finally our new, bespoke, unique classroom has given us an inspirational place to learn.

Sarah Wigglesworth Architects along with MPS builders in Marple Bridge have created for us a truly wonderful environment in which to learn. Much of the extension work has been built with natural, sustainable materials and the fantastic creation on the gable end is our habitat wall (we believe the largest in Europe and co-designed with the children).You can see on the blog page how the building project developed over time.
