The ceremony took place in front of Steve Taylor, CEO of the Cabot Learning Federation, and staff and students of King’s Oak Academy.

They were then given a brief tour of the building by representatives of BAM, the building company.

To be completed by September 2015 in time for the new school year, the academy will welcome its first two form entry phase of pupils to what will be the Cabot Learning Federation’s first 4-19 all through school.

This will be the sixth primary academy to join the Cabot Learning Federation, which has 12 academies in total in Bristol, Bath, South Gloucestershire and Weston super Mare.

The school is being built on the grounds of King’s Oak Academy to make provision for the large number of young children requiring primary places.

Ian Frost, Principal said: “I am delighted that we now have a fantastic building where our pupils are able to learn and flourish.  I'm looking forward to King's Oak Academy Primary Phase opening and seeing this fantastic building alive with happy children enjoying their learning activities.”
