Histon and Impington primary education consultation
Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) is working in collaboration with Cambridge Primary Education Trust (CPET) to permanently increase primary educational provision in Histon and Impington.
Histon and Impington are currently served by Histon and Impington Infant School and Histon and Impington Junior School which are run and managed as academies under this Multi-Academy Trust.
The Council is committed to delivery of the required additional primary education provision in Histon and Impington. This is outlined in the Children and Young People's Committee paper of 17 January 2017.
Histon and Impington Junior School will expand on its current site and extend its age range to serve children aged 4-11, providing a total of 630 places (3 Forms of Entry). Construction began in January 2018 and is due for completion in January 2019. This redevelopment is Phase 1 of a two phase project to expand primary education in Histon and Impington.
In Phase 2, it is proposed that Histon and Impington Infant School will also extend its age range to serve children aged 4-11, providing a total of 420 places (2 Forms of Entry) with a two class pre-school. In order to do this, it is proposed to relocate the school from its current site in New School Road to Buxhall Farm on Mill Lane.
Earlier this year, RG Carter and Saunders Boston Architects won the tender to design and build the new school, which is planned to open in September 2020. Following discussion with CPET, CCC Highways and transport officers and planners from both CCC and South Cambridgeshire District Council, the project team have developed a draft design and would welcome the community's views on the proposals.
On Wednesday 6 June 2018, Histon and Impington Infant School on New School Road hosted a consultation event for the new school. Presentation boards from the event can be found on the Infant School's website.
The presentation boards from the evening will also be on display at the school until 7 July 2018 and comment sheets are available there. If you would like to provide feedback electronically, please email [email protected]. Alternatively, you can write to the school at Histon and Impington Infant School, New School Road, Histon, Cambridge, CB24 9LL, marking your letter "Consultation on the New School at Buxhall Farm". The deadline for responses is 7 July 2018.
