The school had raised funding of £12,000 for the refurbishment over just a six month period.

The Prime Minister, who is MP for Witney, spoke with staff, governors and pupils, and then went on to read to a group of children.

The library was designed and furnished by Birmingham based Peters Books & Furniture to include library storage, different areas for fiction and non-fiction, an ICT area, and a story-time area. Peters created areas for small-group work in an informal setting and in a space designed to be open, fun and modern. Curves and triangular arrangements were used to lead students naturally into the library and also to add interest to the overall look of the space.

Bespoke products were created, such as turning an adjoining storage space into a ‘reading den’, with a small opening which children can crawl into to get into the den. Inside the den they can relax on an upholstered seat base.
