Residents living in Longleat Court apartments, in Park Road, Frome were invited to a tea party by the Steiner Academy to say a big thank you for their patience during the construction of the new school.
The academy said it had been a trying time for the 48 residents who live opposite the former Victoria Hospital site since construction began.
Kier Construction project managers Spencer Cox and Rob James showed the visitors the renovated ground floor of Victoria House and the new Craft Centre and Eurythmy Hall, before leading them into the Main Hall for a cream tea.
The school’s Principal, Trevor Mepham, gave a brief talk, thanking the residents for their forbearance.
Development manager of Longleat Court, Jane Thorp, said: “It is great to see the wonderful buildings that have emerged from the site over the past 18 months. We wish the staff and students a successful and enjoyable time in their new home and look forward to continued links with the school as it grows.”
