Edgewood Primary School pupils in Hucknall started their term with a new classroom built to accommodate the rising intake of pupils.
The claass was built during the summer holidays.
Ed Seeley, head teacher at the Edgewood Drive school, said: “Edgewood is improving rapidly and becoming very very popular .
“It has had a waiting list for the last two years.
“Key Stage one is now completely full so we need to increase our capacity.
“The school now has 339 pupils and the new single- story classroom will make room for 30 more.”
A number of other school building projects are either planned or underway in Hucknall, including the amalgamation of Annie Holgate Infant and Junior schools.
This will mean a brand new 420-place building provided as one of 15 successful Nottinghamshire County Council bids to the central government’s Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP).
