The start of the academic year saw the opening of Rawmarsh Community School’s brand new building – housing 10 new MFL and Social Science classrooms – which the students are settling brilliantly into.
Due to student numbers rapidly growing over the past four years, the school increased Published Admission Numbers (PAN) this year to accommodate more Year 6s transitioning to Rawmarsh – more students meant they needed more space.
In May this year, Hawker Construction Ltd started the construction works on the new block and we were so pleased that it was ready in time for the students returning to and starting Rawmarsh in September.
Matt Turton, Headteacher at Rawmarsh Community School, said: “We are delighted with the new MFL and Social Science block and even more so that it was completed on time to unveil the building to our students at the start of the year.
“Testament to the school’s improvement since becoming part of Wickersley Partnership Trust, we now have the space to help with the continuous rise of Rawmarsh Community School’s popularity.
“It is a truly exciting time for our community and we will continue to commit all of our energy to prepare students for an ever-changing world able and qualified to play their full part in it.”
