The consultation on the principle of opening new secondary provision on land to the south of the Seacroft Hospital site has now closed-many thanks for commenting or responding to the survey. To preserve the integrity of the thread no further comments will now be approved although you can still read the consultation document via the link below. An update on these proposals will be posted in due course.
Our projections for secondary schools in the Inner East and Inner North East of the city indicate that an additional 200 year 7 places will be needed by 2016 rising to 375 by 2018.
We recently consulted on the proposal to expand secondary provision at Roundhay School by 50 places per year group from 2017. Based on projections we believe that in this area there will still be a significant shortfall of places and we are considering a range of options. At a recent stakeholder event there was support for the proposal to open a new secondary provision on part of the former Seacroft Hospital site. This would be opened for children aged 11-16 and would offer 180 places per year group.
We are now seeking your views on the principle of opening new secondary provision on land to the south of the Seacroft Hospital site. You can find out more information from our consultation document Consultation to open secondary provision on land south of Seacroft Hospital
