The end of an era was marked at Braywick Court School as pupils said goodbye to their building.
A celebration assembly was held and children were joined by parents, staff and Royal Borough councillors on Tuesday, July 19.
Last month, the school in Hibbert Road was granted planning permission for a new building which will allow it to hold 210 pupils.
During the build, the children will be moving to Riverside Primary School in Cookham Road for a maximum of two years.
Gemma Donnelly, headteacher said: “We really wanted to celebrate leaving the building, it’s the end of an era. We had parents come down, as well as Cllr Natasha Airey and Cllr Geoff Hill.
“Children performed a leavers’ assembly, played records, sang Spanish songs, performed the Hungry Caterpillar and did some dancing.
“It’s great that we know we are coming back now, and it’s been a positive end.
“We’re just finalising the contractor and we hope to start the building work by October.”
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
