New school too small for pupils

A brand new primary school is having to be extended just two months after it was opened because it's too small!

St Ignatius and Wishaw academy in Lanarkshire, central Scotland, cost a whopping 7.6m to build, but doesn't have enough room for all its pupils.

They won't get to miss any lessons though as the builders have been called back to build some extra classrooms.

Education bosses said it wasn't a great situation, but the school still offered all the latest facilities for pupils.

Not all the parents are happy though. One said: "I think it is ridiculous that they have spent so much money on this brand new school, only to find out that it is too small."
