Bletchley Park veteran Margaret Rowland was special guest at a ceremony to mark the completion of reburishment work at White Spire School in Bletchley.

She joined councillors, governors as well as school staff, pupils and parents to celebrate the unveiling of the £1.7million project.

It involved building a new teaching and learning block, which includes six new classrooms and a sixth form common room.

The new building includes disabled access foro both teachers and pupils, including a platform lift and accessible toilets.

Other improvements include extended corridors, redecorated classrooms and a new primary play area.

Headteacher, Maria Penicud, said: “The ceremony has been a wonderful way to mark the completion of works at the school. The new, updated facilities will be of great benefit to students and teachers and we are thrilled with the finish.”

Bob Ensch, area director for building company Morgan Sindall, said: “We are delighted to have completed work on this important project to expand and refurbish White Spire School.

“The development provides pupils and staff with state-of-the-art-learning facilities, as well as improving accessibility for all.

“The ceremony has been the perfect way to commemorate the project’s completion and it was an honour to mark the occasion with celebrated veteran Margaret Rowland.”

Morgan Sinall secured the contract through the Milton Keynes Framework, which is used by Milton Keynes Council to procure major building works in the area.
