Evendons Primary School will hold a grand opening at its premises in Finchampstead Road on Wednesday, September 3 – the first day of the new school year.

Helen Thorndyke, a trustee of the school, said: “This event is the culmination of two years of hard work by parents, grandparents, neighbours, community leaders and many others to make our dream of opening a school for the Evendons area a reality.

“This is our chance to celebrate with the people who made it happen and thank all who helped along the way.

“It will be a relaxed and informal celebration focusing on those who will benefit most from our fantastic new school – the children.” The event will run from 11am to 2pm and will include an opening ceremony with guest speakers. Lunch will be provided.
