Gillingstool Primary School and New Siblands Special School

Gillingstool Primary School and New Siblands Special School now share a brand new purpose built £16m facility in Thornbury, Bristol.

The unique design means that 210 mainstream pupils will be able to interact with the 45 special educational needs pupils.  They will all share the very best in modern educational facilities and will be able to play together and learn from each other in an exciting integrated learning environment that will benefit the local community for many years to come.

This exciting and innovative new development is sited in the existing school grounds and the old school buildings have been demolished to make way for new sports pitches.

"Cutting edge design philosophy has not only been applied to the building fabric, but to the way the school operates and performs".  Rob Bradley, Regional Director of Leadbitter.
