Gloucestershire School Projects
Gloucestershire County Council is investing £100 million in schools across the county. This includes expansions, new builds and refurbishments to school buildings.
Due to the rise in the county’s younger population, more school places are needed to cater for children. Gloucestershire County Council is committed to ensuring that the county’s children have the best education possible and that they receive a positive schooling experience wherever they attend.
With the responsibility for ensuring that there are enough school places for all children, we are investing £100 million into the county’s schools. This will include improvements to existing school facilities, expanding many others and a new secondary school in the south of Cheltenham.
For some examples of our investment into county schools, please view our video below:
The School Places Strategy provides the latest overview of demographic information for the county and includes a more detailed analysis of each school planning area, including historic trends and future projections. School planning areas align to the geographical locations of primary and secondary schools across the county and are agreed by the Department for Education. This information informs priorities for school place planning in the short (1-2 years), medium (3-5 years) and longer (5-10 years) term and will inform capital investment priorities moving forward.
