Proposal to expand borough secondary schools

Posted on:

People can have their say on proposals to expand two popular borough secondary schools.

The proposal is to increase capacity available at The Wordsley School and The Crestwood School in Brierley Hill. This would see both schools go from five to seven form entry schools.

If agreed the changes would see an additional 300 places available at each school.

Councillor Sue Ridney, cabinet member for children’s services, said:

I’m really pleased that these proposals are now going out to consultation. Both Wordsley and Crestwood are schools at the heart of their community and these plans will be a huge boost to children and their families in the area.
There is an increasing demand for school places across the borough and this expansion means that more places will be available for children in Brierley Hill meeting the needs of the local community in the future.”

The consultations launch on 22 February 2019 and will run until 25 March 2019.
