Wokingham plans to create secondary school places0
Wokingham Borough Council’s decision making executive will consider plans to create additional secondary school places when it meets on March 28.
The Secondary School Provision Strategy sets out how the council will create these places between now and 2016, as well as in the long term.
More secondary school places are needed to meet a national rise in birth rates, and to accommodate new families moving into the Strategic Development Locations (SDLs) being created in the Wokingham Borough.
This rise in birth rates is already being felt in the borough’s primary schools. The council’s Primary School Strategy is progressing well to create new places ready from this September.
There is no immediate shortage of secondary school places in the Wokingham Borough. However, additional year seven places will begin to be needed from 2016 onwards.
