Puddletown First School was previously housed in a Victorian building, constructed in 1864, providing education for up to 150 pupils aged 5-9. The school was on a constrained site and had no capacity to expand the existing listed building.
In October 2012 the first bricks were laid by pupils of their new £3.7m single storey school building which was constructed by Morgan Sindall. Avery Carpentry Contractors were engaged to erect the Glulam beams and roof structure, followed by 1st & 2nd fix throughout the building.
The new school was completed in Autumn 2013.
