Plans to expand schools in Harrow to be discussed this week
Plans to expand three schools to help the borough cope with a rising demand for places will be discussed in the coming week.
Harrow Borough council’s planning committee will discuss the plans for Belmont School, in Hibbert Road, Pinner Wood School, in Latimer Gardens and Kingsley High School, in North Harrow.
Both Belmont and Pinner Wood are part of the councils second phase of primary school expansion which will see 11 schools in the borough grow by class over the next two years.
The first phase of the expansion plan is already underway with eight schools permanently expanded from September last year.
The second phase of the plans will be paid for with government funding, including £30 million from the Government’s Targeted Basic Needs fund.
This will allow the council to provide 3,000 places in primary, secondary and special educational needs schools by 2015.
The planning committee will meet to make a decision on the plans on Wednesday evening at 6:30pm at the council civic centre.
