Newnham Schools to be expanded

As part of its £150 million primary school expansion programme, Hillingdon Council has announced that Newnham Schools are set to grow.

News release: 30 May 2016

In anticipation of more pupils arriving at the school from September 2017 onwards, groundwork for a new temporary classroom will be undertaken over half term (28 May to 5 June). The classroom will then be built over the summer holidays in readiness for more pupils arriving at the school next year.

This temporary classroom will enable children in the area to access high quality education close to home. 

The changes at Newnham Schools are the latest step in Hillingdon Council's school building and expansion programme. They will enable the school to accommodate an additional class in each year group to meet the increasing demand for primary school places in the borough.

Hillingdon Council has been striving to meet this demand by investing £150 million in a primary school building and expansion programme, which is one of the biggest in London.

The council is intending to permanently expand Newnham Infant and Junior Schools, Hillside Infant and Junior Schools and Warrender Primary School. Additional classrooms will be added over the summer holidays where needed, minimising disruption to the school timetable.

Cllr David Simmonds, Deputy Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Education and Children's Services, said: "Hillingdon Council is committed to helping children in the borough to access their chosen schools. The expansion at Newnham School is the next step in an ongoing programme of council funded school improvements and new builds."
