City plans big expansion of school places...

Postby dutchman » Thu Oct 15, 2020 3:33 pm

Another 720 places will be created at secondary schools in Coventry between 2022 and 2024, the city council has said


It is planning to spend £11.9m on the expansion of places and 240 will be ready in time for September 2022.

Ernesford Grange, Finham Park, Blue Coat, Bishop Ullathorne, Lyng Hall, Sidney Stringer, Westwood, plus a further school to be identified will be the schools to expand in the first wave, in 2022.

The project is funded by £23.7m from the Education Skills Funding Agency in May and the majority of the new buildings will be temporary structures.

Cabinet member for education Cllr Kevin Maton said: “There’s nothing worse than building expensive buildings that then are no longer required in five to 10 years time.”
