Tom Hutton, teacher at the academy, said: “We were really grateful to receive the donation of ‘We Can Build’ books from Barratt and David Wilson Homes.

“The book will teach our Key Stage One children about the process of building a new home, and will perhaps inspire our pupils to consider a career in the construction industry.”

The school is close to the Barratt Homes’ Hampton Water development on Aqua Drive.
