Construction of a new school at our Victory Fields development was kick-started by The Cotswolds MP Geoffrey Clifton-Brown when he cut the very first turf.

As well as a village shop, community centre and public house, the popular neighbourhood near the Gloucestershire village of Upper Rissington will include a new sister campus to the Ofsted-rated “excellent” Great Rissington Primary School down the road.

Mr Clifton-Brown said: “Not only will this be an excellent facility in its own right, in a stunning location, it will also end the need to have to travel further afield as parents and children living in Upper Rissington will now have a school on their doorstep.

“During my visit I was able to see the rest of the development, which will provide high quality homes in addition to the school and a new village shop.

“The other bonus of this development is that all the existing houses in Upper Rissington now have a new water supply and a reliable sewerage system, so that all the problems that existed in the past should now be eliminated.”

Linden Homes Thames Valley managing director Peter Carpinelli added: “A new school is always a special moment for a family community like Victory Fields, so we were delighted that the headteacher, local MP and county councillor were all on hand to join us in cutting the first turf.”
