History & Facilities
Rushmere Hall Primary school was built in 1949 on the site of an old cottage, and many aspects of the original garden and boundary hedges have been retained at the front of the school.
The school is a single story construction, spread over a large area. This enables children to learn in very pleasant, spacious surroundings. There are playing fields at the front and rear of the school, providing games and athletic pitches.
In July 2013, our school successfully obtained a Grade Two listing status (with the help of English Heritage), in recognition of the architectural significance of the school’s design and the Festival of Britain Award of 1951.
The interior of the school is extremely well maintained, with its wide corridors and multiple teaching spaces. The school is well resourced, including the most up-to-date ICT equipment.
Our excellent facilities include the following:-
