Parents and pupils view new school plans

Parents attended a meeting at Hertswood Academy to discuss plans for a new school building.

The building, which will be located at the academy's lower school site off Cowley Hill, will be used by all 1,400 pupils – including 200 sixth form students.

Construction is expected to begin next spring and take until April 2017, subject to plans being approved.

The design team was on hand at tonight’s meeting to talk parents and pupils through the proposals, along with an animated ‘walk through’ presentation.

A further exhibition for the public is to be held this Friday from 2pm, at 96 Shenley Road.

i didnt trust a word coming out of any of their mouths, it was a complete waste of time. the contractor and the chair of governors contradicted each other and so did the drawings. they have sold our kids down the river, just like they did over 10 years ago when they closed hillside! build the new school THEN move the kids in. work out the parking for parents so its not even more chaos than it is now THEN move the kids in. why move them all into a building site, into portakabins, while they are doing their GCSEs. its not fair on them!
