Pupils at a school in Watford have been celebrating the opening of their new outdoor learning zone, science laboratory and refurbished school library.

The newly created outdoor learning zone at Lanchester Community Free School will enable Reception students to engage in child-initiated learning, both inside and outside of the classroom.  The space enables children to develop their curiosity, creativity and to explore different types of environments and textures.

Reception children are also enjoying the use of their new reading area in their classrooms, which will enable them to develop their literacy skills.  The main school library, school office and reception were also refurbished as part of this ambitious building project along with a new science laboratory.

John Dibdin, the newly appointed principal, said: “I am delighted to be joining Lanchester at this exciting time. These new facilities are already popular with the pupils at Lanchester and will definitely enhance the learning experience of the children both immediately as well as in the long term as the school grows.”

Mr Dibdin is beginning his third headship, having previously been at Mount Pleasant Lane in Bricket Wood.
