A moving experience for 250 children starting at school’s new Hove home

Posted On 25 Feb 2016 at 3:12 pm

The Bilingual Primary School Brighton and Hove opened for lessons in its new premises next to Hove Park this morning (Thursday 25 February).

Head teacher Wendy King said welcome – and bienvenido – to 250 children who were being taught in English and Spanish in borrowed classrooms in another Brighton school until the half-term break.

The new site, in The Droveway, Hove, will eventually have 630 children, with 90 children expected to join the expanding school each September.

Ms King said: “We are so excited to finally open the doors to our school in our brand new building.

“It is the end of a very long journey for many founders, staff, governors and parents who have worked so hard to get us to this point.

“Now we are in a position to move forward using our fantastic facilities to further enrich our educational curriculum and play a role in the local community.”

The bilingual school pupils were previously taught on the site of the Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA) in Falmer.

    This makes it all worth the 3 and a half years of driving to Falmer. We finally have our own wonderful home. I had two very excited children this morning.
