Thingwall school is breathtaking

Two huge surprises awaited me on one of my visits on Friday.

Those of you who know the area in Thingwall will have seen a new school arise. And not only one new school.

Wirral has built two new schools. And they run into each other, each having hugely wide corridors.

I fitted in a trip to Stanley School. Despite all the problems with the economy, the council has scored a tremendous success here.

The first surprise was how beautiful their new school is. It is breathtaking.

The finish also to Thingwall Primary School is beautiful. The roof over the corridor gives the corridor gives the appearance as though one is in a cathedral. And cathedral-like are the consequences on teaching in both schools. In Stanley School, where I spent most of my time, it was possible to see how children with severe learning difficulties were coping and succeeding.

At the end of Stanley School, a primary school begins. All the children I met were constantly engaged in learning.

Of course, both environments were carefully managed and purposeful. In Stanley School the classes were naturally smaller and the teaching staff – not only the teachers – were more numerous.

But the layout of the classrooms had been carefully thought through to increase the size of the classroom.

I looked in vain for the name of the architect who has produced this beautiful building. Will he or she stand up please?
