Barnt Green residents have voiced concerns to the parish council over a new classroom planned for St Andrew’s First School – it’s a double decker bus!

In a letter to the school’s neighbours, headteacher Kay Cholmondeley said the school could not afford the estimated £250,000 to build a new room, so the specially-converted bus had been suggested as an alternative.

Parked on the school field, it would be used for group work and instrumental tuition, and have patterned film over its windows.

Miss Cholmondeley added that the large hedge on the Poplar Drive side would provide “a fair amount of screening”, but that a covered walkway to the bus would also need to be installed.
