School Site

The School Site

At William Penn School, we have 4 classrooms arranged around or near to a central hall.  The school offices are at the front of the building.  We also have a library which can be accessed from the school hall as well as from Cadbury and Fox class.  We also have a Group Room which is used to teach children in cohorts in the mornings and for break out activities and meetings in the afternoons.

Each of our classrooms is carpeted and has cloakroom and toilet facilities.

The Hall is used for a variety of functions through the day, ranging from assemblies and lunches to curriculum sessions where a larger space is needed.  Our grounds are extensive and attractive.  We have an exciting, zoned Early Years outdoors area.  This is partly covered and allows our younger pupils to work outside every day.  This has been supplemented with an all weather flooring surface that is set out in the form of a road. 

We are fortunate in having a large conservation area which is used as part of the curriculum.  The pond area is very popular and with the wooded sections, encourages a wide range of wildlife.  All ages of pupils enjoy the trim trail which gives the children a further opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. 

We make as much use of our field area as we are able to, both as a learning environment and as a place to picnic and play.
