Tewkesbury 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 Tewkesbury area:
As a result of increased demand for school places, building works are proposed to facilitate the expansion of Winchcombe School by 1 Form of Entry so that the school can accommodate 600 places in total from September 2021.
Ashchurch Primary School
As a result of local housing developments, Ashchurch School and the school will increase its planned admission number from 19 to 21 pupils in September 2019. In order to accommodate the additional pupils at the school we are intending to provide the school with an additional classroom. At the same time two Elliotts, already in use at the school, are to be replaced due to them being in poor condition. The proposal is therefore, to provide the school with 3 new classrooms and we will be submitting a planning application shortly in this respect.
Thank you to the 39 people who attended the drop in session on 14th February. It was a very useful evening with local residents, representatives from Gloucestershire County Council, construction team and Head Teacher and Governors of the school all coming together.
Tredington Primary School
Work started in February to provide Tredington Primary School with an additional modular classroom, including a group room with toilet and cloakroom facilities. The work was completed in April 2019 on time and on budget.
