Archway's impact in the community


Following our development at Wood Farm, Guilden Sutton, Archway Homes’ Land and Sustainability Director, Rachael Whelan, caught up with the local school, Guilden Sutton C of E Primary School, to find out how they had been able to use our education contribution to make improvements at the school.

Along with money raised by the school’s Trustees, the money has been put to good use. They have created much needed storage areas for Years 5 and 6, providing more space in their classrooms, and also installed a brand new, covered, outdoor play area for joint use by Reception and Year 1. Head Teacher, Kathy Crowe remarked “The new areas look fantastic and everyone is making the most of the new space.”

Rachael commented, following the visit, “It’s really lovely to see the positive effect our developments can have on a community and, as several of our customers from the Wood Farm development have children at this school, they are also benefiting from our contribution.”
