Hillingdon Council to rebuild Northwood School

Hillingdon Council is embarking on a rebuild of Northwood School which will increase its capacity to 900 pupils, as well as providing excellent modern facilities for its pupils.

News release: 11 April 2014

This brand new school is set to open in 2016. It has an estimated cost of £28 million, with Hillingdon providing £21.6 million, and Central Government funding of £6.4 million.

The rebuild of Northwood School compliments and adds to the council's Primary School Building Programme of £150 million.

Cllr David Simmonds, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Education and Children's Services, said: "I'm delighted for the children, parents and staff at Northwood who will have a brand new school.

"It's also essential that the new school provides sufficient places as demand locally increases in future years and we welcome the government's approval for our proposal to increase capacity to 900 pupils.

"Providing quality school places for pupils near where they live is an absolute priority for the council and this announcement once again shows that we are delivering on our pledge to put our residents, of all ages, first."

Work is progressing well on the council's primary school building programme - the largest of its kind in London - which will create 6,500 additional places across the borough.

Between September 2011 and September 2014 extra facilities and new classrooms are being added to a total of 28 schools, with two new primary schools due to open in September 2014 and a third in September 2015.
