THERE'S a last chance to look around the buildings of the former Hillfields Park Infant and Junior Schools this month before their demolition.

 THERE'S a last chance to look around the buildings of the former Hillfields Park Infant and Junior Schools this month before their demolition.

Minerva Primary Academy is opening its doors to visitors from 10am to noon on Saturday November 26.

Principal Peter Hallam said he hoped many local people would come along to share their memories of the schools, which opened in 1927 and 1929.

Children and staff are moving into temporary accommodation while a new school is built. It will be a two-storey building with 15 classrooms and a dining and assembly hall and studio space as well as a community room, an after school club/art/DT/cookery room and  extra outdoor space for adventure areas and learning undercover.
