Historic Bristol Building Hosts its First Primary School Spring Fair!

Fairlawn Primary School has given a new lease of life to the 1898 Victorian Fairfield Grammar School building in Montpelier, as the new primary school educates its first class of reception children in the beautifully modernised building.

Preparing for its second intake of reception children in September, the spacious school building has been impressively modernised to create bright, open spaces, well equipped to educate children in the 21st century. The final renovation will see the creation of an interactive and vibrant outdoor play area for the children to enjoy.

The redevelopment of the site has been applauded by the local community who will have the opportunity to see for themselves the tremendous transformation during the school’s first open day and spring fair scheduled for Saturday 21st May.

Headteacher, Julie Molesworth, said “We’re very proud to be the custodian of such a magnificent piece of architecture and our children are fascinated by the history of the building. We are all excited to have the opportunity to showcase the newly renovated building to the local community, and the children are already hard at work preparing for the open day and spring fair.”

Bristol’s High Sheriff, Helen Wilde, will officially open the event which will feature a raft of fun activities for families including face painting, music, crafts, flowers, community greening, a raffle, as well as plenty of stalls selling cakes, ice creams and plants, to name but a few.

Mrs Molesworth added “I’d like to acknowledge the commitment of Bristol City Council and CGS Trust who have worked together to create such a wonderful setting for Fairlawn Primary School”.
