Allerton Grange School

Final drop-in session to discuss Allerton Grange School expansion plans

The final public drop-in session to discuss the proposed expansion of Allerton Grange School takes place next week.

The session, to be held at the school on Tuesday 26 November from 4.30pm-7pm, forms part of the ongoing consultation into a proposed increase in the number of Year 7 places available at the school from 240 to 300, starting in September 2021. To help meet the needs of the increased number of pupils, extra classroom space and other facilities would be provided on the existing school site.

The proposed expansion aims to help meet the future projected demand in the area. Since 2009, Leeds City Council has created over 12,000 extra primary school places across the city, with these students now preparing to transition into secondary education.

Councillor Jonathan Pryor, Leeds City Council’s executive member for learning, skills and employment said:

“We want to ensure that all children in Leeds continue to have access to the best possible education, with a strong focus on meeting the increasing demand for secondary school places across the city.

“We encourage parents and carers, local residents and all those interested in the Allerton Grange proposals to share their thoughts on the proposed expansion by completing the online survey or coming down to the drop-in session.”

The consultation runs until 4pm on Tuesday 3 December.

Anyone interested in this proposal is encouraged to complete the online survey before the consultation ends to ensure their views are heard. The survey and further information about the proposal is available here: www.leeds.gov.uk/schoolplaceconsultations
