Bandon Hill Primary School Wood Field and Oak Field celebrated its official opening, with Tom Brake and the Mayor of Sutton, on Friday 18th October.

Tom joined staff, parents and Isabel Ramsay, the Executive Head Teacher of Bandon Hill for the official launch of Wood Field and Oak Field in Beddington Gardens, Carshalton. Both opened for Reception students in September 2013 and are housed on the former Stanley Park High School site.

During the event, Tom had a chance to learn about the school which now includes a new Autistic department known as Oak Field. This class of 6 children will focus on the needs of autistic children, providing them with a supportive environment.

Commenting on the opening Tom said, "It was a real pleasure to attend the official opening of the new Bandon Hill Primary school where the Gruffalo was definitely the star of the show!"

"I know the new schools will help support children in their development of knowledge and skills and help them reach their full potential."

The original Bandon Hill has been re-named Bandon Hill Primary - Meadow Field and the new school on the old Stanley Park High School site is called Bandon Hill Primary - Wood Field and the autistic department - Oak Field. The new expansion programme saw the opening of Wood Field which has 4 forms of entry. This, along with the two forms of entry at Meadow Field means that Bandon Hill has become a 6 form entry school.
