Kingshurst Primary School unveils plans for three new classrooms

Solihull Editorial 20th Aug, 2019   0

A SOLIHULL school has unveiled plans for its third expansion in just five years.

Kingshurst Primary wants to build three new classrooms and new accommodation for the onsite independent play group, Caterpillars.

The School Close school is hoping to move to a three-form entry system where each year group could have up to 90 children to keep up with the growing population of the borough.

Documents handed to Solihull Council state the new building would be separated from the existing school by a footpath and play area, but close enough to be well connected.

The planned new block would be on the site of the current Caterpillars building, which it has occupied since 2013.

The nursery would be based in the school’s inclusion centre while construction work is taking place.

When Kingshurst Primary was first built around a decade ago it had 420 places, with classroom extensions following in 2014 and 2017.

The application for Kingshurst Primary is set to be considered by Solihull Council in the coming months.
