New £200m BSF plans unveiled by West Midlands council

A West Midlands council has unveiled a new £200m schools programme with changes to its Building Schools for the Future programme.

The Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet has given its backing to new facilities including a new 1,050 place academy at Priorslee, a new 1,200 place school in Wellington and a new primary and secondary school to incorporate existing schools in Stirchley.

Councillor Paul Watling said: “The new proposals will achieve better value for money from the Building Schools for the Future programme while continuing to create high quality learning environments for our young people as well as community facilities for all.

“After reviewing previous proposals for delivering new educational facilities, I think these changes will make a huge difference to the standard of the facilities that we would now be able to provide.”

The proposals also include a new 1,050 place co-operative Academy on the site adjacent to the existing Oakengates Leisure Centre.

A full consultation will be launched into the proposals on 21 November.
