The school received the £500 donation in the summer, and the new facilities were opened last week.

Lockheed Martin UK offered the cash after the school sent an appeal to parents. Two of the firm’s employees, who have children at the school, asked the company’s charity committee to help out.

Headteacher Brian Storey said: “We’re really grateful for the donation from Lockheed Martin UK.
