Facilities and Resources

Purbrook Junior School | Facilities and ResourcesWe are proud of our school and the facilities and resources that we offer. We continually strive to offer our children the best possible resources that will support their learning journey over the four years that they are with us. Over the years, we have made a number of improvements and continue to look for ways to develop our indoor and outdoor spaces further.

Inside

Our Main Hall is at the heart of our school building (used for assemblies, drama and music performances, indoor PE lessons and school lunches). Located in two separate wings either side of the Main Hall are two shared areas in which six classrooms surround each (Years 3/5 and Years 4/6). Each shared area has access to laptops and iPads to enhance learning.
