June Bellingham, business manager at Langold School, said: “We are so glad to be out of our temporary accommodation.

“The refurbishment has created a modern, bright environment that has been well received by staff, pupils and visitors.

“Sadly, the fire damaged two classrooms, a meeting room, the main school reception and all of our offices, but we have used this as an opportunity to remodel some of these areas so that the space better suits the school’s needs.

“I cannot praise B&M highly enough for the professionalism, dedication and commitment that they have demonstrated throughout this project.

Matt Hallam contracts manager at B&M Installations said: “Langold Dyscarr Community School has been a pleasure for us to work with.

“The refurbishment project has been challenging, but we are thrilled with the result.
