Application For New Classrooms At Chiltern School, Kingland Site #kingslandhr

 An application has been submitted to build 4 new classrooms on Parkside Campus (Kingsland) for The Chiltern School.  

The school provides help for pupils with a range of learning needs including

  • Moderate learning difficulties and additional needs 
  • Severe learning difficulties 
  • Autism and autistic spectrum conditions
  • Profound and multiple learning difficulties

Currently the largest class has 10 pupils but the average class size is 7 pupils. The secondary school was built in 2000s as an extension to the original primary school building, built in the 1970’s.

This proposed new building will provide 291m² of much needed classroom space to accommodate a further 24 pupils to the 106 pupils whom already attend the school.  The need for extra classroom space is derived from the school’s requirement to extend the provision of much needed Specialist Educational Needs facility serving the current catchment area and beyond.

The building will be created using 10 prefabricated modular units and will reduce impact on the day- to day running of the school.  The proposed building offers light grey coloured panel cladding with micro rib profile throughout.

The application form section 5 indicates no pre-application advice was sought from Central Bedfordshire Council and section 25 states that the land belongs to the applicant.

Full details can be seen on Central Bedfordshire Council's web site planning pages.  Application number CB/17/02558/FULL
