The Second Phase Begins
We now need your help to raise a further £60,000 to redevelop our old hall and kitchen. All funds must be raised by 31st December 2011 and building work is due to begin in July. Will you help us reach our target and start 2012 with the work complete?
Sir William and Lady Benyon
"The opening of the new school hall was a memorable and very happy day. We felt privileged to be taking part, and had the feeling that Richard Benyon was smiling down on the remarkable place this 19th century school has become. As The Primary Project it enters its second phase, we hope that you will give generously once again so the school can continue to thrive and develop for many more years to come. Thank you for your support"

Carols Round the Tree and Celebration of the Completion of Phase 2 of the Primary Project
We will be celebrating the completion of Phase 2 of The Primary Project at this year's Carols Round the Tree evening on Monday 19th December at 6.30 pm. Carols Round the Tree is a popular and informal festive occasion. It is for the whole family. We sing carols (chosen as we sing), eat mince pies, drink mulled wine and end with a thought and a prayer.
We will gather outside the new front entrance, sing a carol, cut a ribbon and have a prayer of blessing for the new building. We will then walk the length of the school to continue the evening in the hall.
Members of the community are invited to join us, please let the Bradfield School Office know if you intend to come.
