The capacity of the through-school is being increased from 1,250 pupils to 1,500 in years seven to 11 with effect from next September.

Building works began in June. The project includes a brand new building along with the conversion of an existing grassed pitch into a synthetic turf, which will be used by both the school and the local community.
