A consultation has now opened, to invite people to give their views on proposals which would see a new secondary school built near Moulton to meet the high demand for places in the area.
I know that shortages in secondary school places has become a concern over the past couple of years. To cater for this, since 2019, over 800 additional places have been added to existing schools in the area, at a large cost to the council. This new school, funded and delivered by the Department for Education (DfE), would help meet this growing demand.
The West Northamptonshire Council is proposing to provide the DfE with ‘Wantage Farm’, located to the west of Thorpeville, Moulton. Whilst a range of sites have been considered, this one was deemed the most suitable.
It is vital that all of your views are heard on this proposal, so that they can be considered before any decision is made. I encourage all of you to have your say by completing the online questionnaire at: https://westnorthants.citizenspace.com/
