Proposed expansion of Beaulieu Park School

A public consultation is taking place between Monday 23 May 2022 and Monday 11 July 2022 on a proposal to expand Beaulieu Park School by 420 primary places (60 per year), with effect from 1 September 2024.

The consultation also includes details of other options for consideration.

The option to introduce a new primary school

Built on the same site, but separate and independent of Beaulieu Park School. The new school would provide the extra primary school places needed.

The council would lead on the legal process to appoint a sponsor to run the school. It is a competitive process and would be open to all existing Academy Trusts and standalone Academies. The Secretary of State for Education would make the final decision to appoint the sponsor.

The council is aware that New Hall Multi Academy Trust have already expressed an interest to run the school. The council will consider them along with other applicants if this option proceeds. Currently New Hall Multi Academy Trust has no approval to sponsor the new school.
