Consultation on the proposal to increase capacity at Campion School

Introduction

This consultation is being undertaken to advise you of proposals concerning Campion School and to invite you to tell us what you think of the proposals. This is part of a statutory consultation process that Warwickshire County Council is managing in partnership with the Governing Body. The proposal is:

  • To increase the capacity at Campion School from just over 5 forms of entry to 7 forms of entry from September 2019. From September 2019, the published admission number (PAN) will increase from 155 to 210 with each incoming year 7 cohort, meaning the overall capacity of the school in year groups 7 to 11 will gradually rise from 775 to 1,050 pupils.

Why Change?

The proposal to increase capacity at Campion School has been put forward to accommodate the forecast pressure on secondary school places in the Warwick and Leamington area from September 2019.  This is due to larger cohorts of primary age pupils moving through into secondary and the impact of large scale housing development in the area.

Building Consequences

This letter concerns the statutory process of increasing the capacity of the school in year groups 7 to 11 from 775 to 1,050.  This proposal will require some changes and extension to the school building.  However, this will be subject to a separate process and will be linked to the submission of an application for planning permission.

What is the proposed timetable?

  • March 2017: The County Council’s Cabinet gave approval for the proposal to go out for consultation
  • 6th September 2017 – 6th October 2017: Consultation with parents and the local community to take into account the views expressed regarding the proposals to increase in capacity.
  • 9th November 2017: If Cabinet agree to the proposals, the decision will be implemented with the expansion being completed in time for September 2019.

Have Your Say…

As an integral part of this process, we are inviting you to take part in this consultation. We welcome your views on the proposed changes raised in this letter and all viewpoints will be taken into account before deciding to publish formal proposals.
