Forest of Dean school places

The County Council has a statutory duty to plan the provision of school places and to ensure there are sufficient, appropriately located places for all 4 to 16 year old young people in the County. This includes the commissioning of suitable school accommodation to support the promotion of high-quality educational standards and to ensure vulnerable learners get fair access to educational opportunities. The County Council manages the impact of rising and declining pupil numbers and helps to create a diverse community of schools.

See below for the latest updates on all of our school projects in the Forest of Dean:


We are making improvements to Drybrook Primary School. We are building three garden space classrooms. Once built, these new classrooms will replace the temporary classrooms, which will be demolished.

The foundations and other work will be started in the coming months.

The building works are due to be completed by March 2019.
