School site update
We had another great visit to site to see how work was progressing and to meet with the team who are working so hard to get our school ready. The building is really starting to take shape and feel like a school!
The exciting part begins now as we start to pick the interiors. We can’t wait to share our choices with you and we hope you will like them as much as we do! Keep a look out over the coming weeks!
A message from our Head Teacher
Last week, we visited the site again to see the progress over the last month. This was my first visit inside the building and it was safe to say I was really blown away with the spacious classrooms, the studio, our large pastoral room and all the extra group work rooms our school has. The views and the outside space, including our all weather sports pitch, are simply stunning. I can’t wait to see these being enjoyed by the children in September.
Over the next couple of weeks, the large glass panels to the main hall will be installed and the remaining windows will be in. I look forward to being able to show you these pictures very soon!
As always, if you have any questions regarding either the school or Little Learners, please do not hesitate in emailing me on the address above. I look forward to meeting you all very soon.

In February, we commissioned Bristol Drones to take some aerial footage of the school building site. Look at the fantastic results below!
School site update
Our team visited the site on Friday to see the progress that has been made since our last on site visit. What a difference a few months have made!
It was great to be able to go inside the building for the first time. We hope you will agree with us that the view from our main school hall is amazing - we can't wait to see it on a sunny day!
Section 10 consultation evening
On Thursday 17th September, we hosted an evening event to share with interested parties information regarding the opening of our new school, Great Oldbury Primary Academy and our pre-school and nursery provision, Great Oldbury Little Learners.
This event formed part of the section 10 consultation which is taking place until the 26th October. The consultation enables local residents, staff and governors from local schools, parents, councillors, community groups and other interested parties to share their views regarding our new school.
It was great to meet everyone and to hear their views and questions about.
Work on site
Wow what a difference! Only two months since work on site began and what a difference. You can really see the size and shape of the school and the amazing outside space that will be on offer for the children.
We are excited to announce that work has begun at the site for Great Oldbury Primary Academy! The school is due to open its doors in September 2021 initially to EYFS and Year 1 and eventually growing to a capacity of 420 students. There will also be spaces in our very own nursery and Pre School – Great Oldbury Little Learners.
At the end of June, the team were invited to make our first official visit to the site to celebrate the commencement of the work. Our official school website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have been launched to enable us to share information with prospective parents and to update everyone with our latest news as we work towards our opening date. Please continue to share these pages with anyone that you feel these may be of interest to!
In September, we will be opening our section 10 consultation to gather the local community’s thoughts, opinions and questions in regards to Great Oldbury Primary Academy. There will also be an opportunity for the local community to attend a face to face meeting on Thursday 17th September at Eastington Village Hall. This will be an opportunity to hear some our GLA leaders talk about our trust and what we can offer, our school’s curriculum and vision and how we will work alongside our local teaching communities. Please keep an eye on our website and social media for more information in the coming months.
