Heart of the Forest School

In November 2021, permission was obtained to expand the Heart of the Forest Special School in order to provide places for 10 children with SEMH needs.

Over the past few months, a design team have been working with the school to develop proposals for the required accommodation at the school. The team have now begun the process to seek planning permission for the building.

Please download the proposed elevations and proposed ground floor plan for further information.

Places at the school are expected to be available from September 2023.
