The development of Kingsthorpe Grove Primary School was driven by Northamptonshire County Council’s re-organisation of schools across the county.
For the school, this meant increasing from a 2-form entry lower school into a 470-place 2-form entry primary school, including a nursery for children aged 3-4 and an expansion of the existing Designated Special Provision for pupils with an autism spectrum disorder to cover the whole primary age range.
The existing Grade II Listed Edwardian buildings were also upgraded to meet the needs of a 21st Century education establishment. Works consist of a new reception building linking the nursery to the primary school, an extension to the existing DSP unit as well as a large amount of remodelling and refurbishment including the conversion of the existing swimming pool within the Listed curtilage into a children’s centre.
