Pupils, parents and teachers celebrated the grand opening of Vaughan Primary School, by Gareth Thomas MP, that took place on Friday 23 February 2018.
The event was the culmination of a phased expansion of the school to accommodate more pupils and meet Harrow Council’s need for additional student places in the borough. The school has been extended and refurbished and now has fresh new classrooms, gym, catering kitchen and improved security.
“The new building works fantastically for us, from safeguarding and flow around the school, to the colours, atmosphere and spaces created by LOM. The school provides us with calm environment that the children and teachers really enjoy.” Andrew Griffin, Head Teacher, Vaughan School
Vaughan Primary School expansion is one of 10 school expansion projects that LOM has delivered for Harrow Council. The project was originally part of the Council’s Primary Expansion Programme and gained planning permission in 2013. Vaughan was then selected by the Education Funding Agency as part of their Priority School Building Programme, and LOM reworked the scheme to suit the EFA’s requirements. This involved adapting the design, reducing cost and meeting their outline specification as closely as planning restrictions allowed.
