School Information

The Arches was established in September 2005 following the amalgamation of Blacon Hall Junior School and Blacon Infant and Nursery School. With a new name and a new purple uniform, our original intake stood at 298 pupils aged 3-11 years, in the totally refurbished two storey Infant Building. 

In July 2006 our Nursery department closed and Nursery provision became available from Blacon Children's Centre fashioned on the old Junior Site.

The Arches contains separate classrooms for each of 9 classes, grouped in years, for boys and girls aged 4-11 years.

We also have:

- A large hall with an equipped stage used for PE, Music and Dining

- A modern kitchen where daily healthy meals and snacks are prepared

- A school library

- Several smaller teaching areas

- Foundation Stage building with outdoor teaching/play area

- Fully refurbished and zoned playground

- Two large playing fields

- Meeting room & Family Room.

- Internet facilities and interactive whiteboards in all classrooms

- A 30 station ICT suite
