Closes 10 Jul 2020

Opened 1 Jun 2020

Overview

Northamptonshire County Council proposes to establish a new mainstream primary school on the new Sustainable Urban Extension (SUE) development at Towcester, known as Towcester South. Provision for this school is made in the planning consent and the Section 106 (S106) agreement for the development. This agreement is a legal document which requires that sites suitable for 2 two form of entry primary schools need to be provided in accordance with timescales which are linked to the pace of the development along with other conditions which must be met.

Under the legislation which governs the establishment of new schools, the County Council is required to invite proposals to run the school from qualifying academy providers. That competitive process will be starting later in the summer of 2020. Prior to commencing the process, however, the Council is consulting on the school proposal generally.

This non statutory consultation will run from 1st June 2020 to 10th July 2020.
