Work to remodel St Mary's Primary School in Jersey will start in January.

The project is set to cost £6.5m and includes a new nursery, a new hall roof and larger classrooms.

Historic parts of the building will be kept, with the oldest block dating back to 1901.

Building work will be completed in four phases over the next two years.

St Mary’s School is very much at the heart of the parish community but the buildings are long overdue for an upgrade. A new building will create huge opportunities for the staff and the children.

This is also a significant investment for families of the parish and opens up new and exciting learning opportunities.

– Senator Tracey Vallois, Jersey's Education Minister
