We are excited to reveal that work on the new £4 million Woodgate Primary School will start in July 2020.
The new-build school will eventually have capacity for 210 pupils at Pease Pottage in West Sussex offering 5 state of the art classrooms and early years nursery provision, an 18m² main hall, library, multi-functional space and a special educational needs room.
The new Woodgate Primary School is expected to open to its first pupils at the beginning of the 2021 school year.
Rob Boughton, CEO of Thakeham Group, said:
We have sought to fund and deliver Woodgate Primary School at an early stage of the development. This is because the school will play such a crucial role in inspiring a thriving new community.
We are grateful to everyone who has played their part in offering feedback and helping us to design a school to make West Sussex proud.
The Woodgate development is a new countryside community located off Parish Lane to the south of Crawley, next to the village of Pease Pottage.
Woodgate includes 619 new homes, a shop and a café, a community centre, parks and a pavilion.
The development will also provide a new home for locally-based charity, St Catherine’s Hospice.
