Have your say on designs for a new Secondary School for Wisbech at a drop in consultation event in January.

Cambridgeshire County Council, with Design and Build Partner Kier Construction, will be holding events to seek views on the proposed Fenland Education Campus from 3-7pm on Wednesday 9 January. The two simultaneous events will be held at Wisbech St Mary’s Community Centre, Beechings Close, Wisbech St Mary, Wisbech, PE13 4SS and at the Queen Mary Centre, Queen’s Road, Wisbech, PE13 2PE.

The proposed 600-place Secondary School, built on Cambridgeshire County Council owned land, will serve the current population and villages west of Wisbech and respond to rising pupil numbers from new residential developments in the town.

The Campus will also include purpose-built accommodation for 60 pupils with Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs. This will enable the TBAP Unity Academy to relocate from their current leased site in Wisbech.

Land on site will be retained by the Council for future expansion of the Secondary School and for a Primary School to provide the additional school places that would be required when the planned development of West Wisbech occurs.

Subject to planning permission, construction begins in autumn 2019 with TBAP Unity Academy moving into their new accommodation in late autumn 2020 and the Secondary School ready for occupation by September 2021.

Plans can be viewed on a new project website which will be regularly updated.
