...at first viewing of early plans for new school build.

Interested residents are invited to have a first glimpse at early designs for a new school build which will help provide places for hundreds of SEND pupils in North Wiltshire.

The pre-planning application designs for the school site at Rowde will be shared in a virtual event on 11 November from 6pm and the local community is being invited to attend.

The full planning application goes out for consultation early in the new year and will be shaped by feedback from the pre-planning event as local people and families involved in the school have their say.

The £33m build earmarked for the build on the Rowde site will be a major step in creating a first class and inclusive education for SEND pupils and their families in North Wiltshire. On 1 September the three school sites of Larkrise, Rowdeford and St. Nicholas came together as one school with the working name of North Wiltshire School. A new name for the school will be decided before the end of 2020 after the three school communities came up with suggestions.

Main construction works are expected to start in Summer 2021 and be complete for Sept 2023.

People are invited to attend the online event on 11 November from 6pm. To attend please email specialschools@wiltshire.gov.uk
