CLOSE ties with Great Hucklow Primary School led to Anne Butcher being invited to officially open its new extension.
Anne, a former pupil at the school who went on to work there for more than 40 years, was on hand to cut the ribbon at the event held on Friday.
Parents were invited to join pupils, staff and other guests to see for themselves the new classroom extension and extensive internal refurbishment of the building.
Headteacher Rachel Purvis said the changes had made a massive difference to the school. “We have a big new classroom and the school has been completely refitted throughout.”
The changes to the original Victorian building have transformed the facilities which are now light, airy and spacious.
Among the changes internally is the updated IT equipment which has also been installed at the school.
