Planning permission granted

1 Dec 2015

St. Jérôme Church of England Bilingual School has taken another significant step towards opening. The school has secured change of use planning permission for its innovative proposal to turn the former Wickes House building on Station Road into a light, bright, modern primary school. News of the official approval means that the team are on track to start building work as planned early in the New Year.

The creative plans and large spaces mean that, as well as the usual primary school classrooms and halls, the new school will enjoy a range of specialist facilities including: an integrated Early Years facility which allows children to learn indoors and outside, a TV & radio studio, a language resource centre and library, a music room and practice room, and a specialist art and technology room.
