How to celebrate a new school – by buying gifts for the teachers and the children

As the new year begins, there are many things that you need to know about the new New Year’s Eve school, which is being built in a former army barracks in the south-east of England.

Here are the top three things you should know.


The schools will have a new name. 

A school which has been in use since the 1970s is now known as the National School of the United Kingdom (NSSB), in honor of the country’s military contribution to World War II. 

The new name is based on the theme of the new School of Education (SOE), which will open in 2017. 


It will be the largest primary school in the UK. 

It will have 2,300 pupils, but this will increase to 3,000 pupils by 2021. 


It is open to children of all ages. 

At the moment, all the pupils at the new schools are under the age of 16. 

In 2019, the school will open to the wider community, with special classes for children with learning difficulties.
