Don't miss out on chance to have say on new city school

People have until late January to have their say on a new secondary school to be planned in Worcester.

The current round of public consultation over the school, proposed to be built in the Newtown Road area of the city subject to recommendations and permissions, is seeking views from parents, children and stakeholders.

The issues they are being asked to comment on are the age range of the school, its values and the building principles.

The results of the consultation will help shape the requirements for finding an academy trust to operate the school.

Conservative councillor Marcus Hart, Worcestershire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, said: “We are really keen to hear from all stakeholders on the council’s current proposal for the school and would urge people to use the consultation form on our website and have your say.

“We know that the new school in Worcester is something that the local communities and others are in support of.

“We were pleased with the level of response to the first survey and we are hoping this second consultation will also be something our local communities can really get involved in and together we can shape the future of the new school.”

Nearly 600 responses were received as part of the first round of engagement on the new secondary school project.

The public consultation runs until Sunday, January 23.
