Official Opening by HRH The Duke of Gloucester

On 2nd October 2018  HRH The Duke of Gloucester officially opened our completed new school buildings.

Chulmleigh Secondary Modern School was originally built in 1938 and over the years, several temporary buildings were added, to such an extent that by 2004 more than 70% of the school as a whole was made up of ‘temporary’ buildings - some more than 50 years old. Before the new building programme began, pupils had to suffer annual rodent infestations, mouldy classrooms, inadequate heating in the winter, poor ventilation and overheating in the summer.

Executive Headteacher Michael Johnson said, “We are very proud of what we have achieved together; a brand new school built on budget and on time. The drafty old temporary wooden huts which were, at the time, described as ‘not fit for chickens’ have all been replaced with a purpose-built school, giving pupils and staff the best environment possible and excellent value for taxpayers."
