Construction is now underway on the expansion of Winterstoke Hundred Academy secondary school, which will provide up to 900 school-places in a new building at Parkland Village just outside of Weston-super-Mare.
The expanded school facilities, which are funded through Homes England’s Housing Infrastructure Fund, will help to increase intake so that families from across the area can access local schooling for years to come. It is hoped that the modern teaching facilities will have a positive impact on pupils’ attainment, providing them with opportunities to get the best start in life.
Planning permission for the scheme was granted in September 2021, with construction beginning soon afterwards. The new school building is expected to open in 2023.
