A £2.5m hi-tech primary school officially opened last week.

Chilton Primary School is an amalgamation of the former infant and juniors schools on to the former junior site. A major refurbishment programme took place at the existing school, with extensive new building.

The school was opened by county councillors George Porter and Neil Foster, cabinet member for education. Coun Foster said: "The school now incorporates not only main teaching and nursery areas, but also quiet and practical accommodation, a new library resource facility and an area for group IT learning as well as more appropriate administration facilities.

Head teacher Dave Wallace said: "The new premises are absolutely superb."
