A new primary and pre-school has been built at Chilton Leys in Stowmarket following the granting of planning permission to Suffolk County Council. The new 210 pupil primary school and 60 pupil pre-school provides sufficient school places for local children and helps support recent housing developments in the area. 

Following community consultation, the school was named after Grace Cook (1877 – 1958), a pioneering astronomer who was born and lived in Stowmarket. She was one of the first group of women elected as Fellows of the Royal Astronomical Society, and was a leading expert on meteors and comets.  

The two-storey school comprises eight classrooms, a large hall and kitchen. The single-storey nursery consists of two main playrooms and a kitchen. Included within the development is a new football pitch, ball court and outdoor play areas, as well as covered bike shelters to encourage more children to cycle to school. The school has been designed to accommodate future expansion and meet population growth in the area.
