LAMBROOK School is set to refurbished and extended after the council approved plans to upgrade the “dated” Junior School building.

The school’s maths building has been refurbished and plans outlined a number of enhancements which would bring the junior school up to date with other structures on the site.

Timber cladding and new aluminium windows would be introduced at the building, and a canopy “will be used to create a more inviting entrance”.

A small, 76 square metre extension of the building will enable the school to create an additional classroom, and “undersized” toilets used by the cleaning staff will be relocated.

Lambrook School was founded in 1860 and is located in Winkfield Row, Bracknell, and has 450 pupils, both boys and girls from the age of 3 to 13.

A new arts building has recently been built on the school site.
