New School

As most of you will be aware plans are in place to amalgamate St Mary’s Infant School and St Peter’s Junior School and build a new primary school on the fields adjacent to St Mary’s.

The first part of the process was an agreement to amalgamate the two schools to form one 'all-through' primary school.

In September 2014 the schools began the process of consultation on the proposed amalgamation, to be implemented when the new joint school was opened. (See Consultation Document below).There were very few objections, the consultation period is now completed and the amalgamation has been fully approved and can take place once the new build has been completed.

Both schools are in consultation with the Educational Funding Authority and the initial stages of planning for the new build should be completed early in the new year.
