Rose Hill Nursery, in Hednesford, formerly joined The Hednesford Hills Federation along with Hednesford Nursery and West Hill Primary School in April 2019.

It has since undergone a refurbishment throughout including its three rooms and outdoor space.

As part of the refurbishment the rooms have had new flooring, ceilings, lights, furniture, toilets and kitchens, while the outdoor area has new fencing, covering, a woodland themed area, artificial grass and pergola.

Kelly Bracebridge, executive headteacher, said: "The nursery was finally completed with the support of The Graham Burnett Trust which contributed the funds to allow us to make the essential improvements to the outdoor space to ensure that children are safe, happy and can enjoy a full range of enrichment opportunities.

"John Hibbs represented the trust and cut the ribbon to an array of cheers.
