Reading School Welcomes Royal Visitor for New Building Launch


The Duke of Kent will officially open Katesgrove Primary’s new Huntley and Palmer building on Tuesday 18th March.

The new building, completed in September 2013, was needed to enable the school to take 90 new pupils each year, and is part of Reading Borough Council’s school expansion programme which will deliver another 2520 places in the next few years.

Incorporating a studio for dance, gym and drama classes and a topic room for music lessons, lunch time clubs and well-being classes for parents, the new building has allowed the school to free up much needed space elsewhere. This has lead to the creation of a ‘Nurture’ room for children who find social times difficult to cope with in addition to a location for Emotional Literacy group work and for parent coffee mornings.
