Hillingdon Council invests in more primary school places

News release: 18/1/18 - Hillingdon Council is investing £153 million into primary schools to create more places for local children, and expansion works are underway at Warrender Primary School and Hillside Infant and Junior Schools.

Warrender school  The expansion of Warrender Primary School, Ruislip, will offer an additional 210 school places, with works including a new two-storey building to accommodate eight classrooms, an ICT suite, library, Design Technology room, and group spaces. There will also be a new multi-use games area and a sports pitch and the existing hall space will be enlarged. Building work is expected to be fully completed by the end of 2018. 

Hillside Infant and Junior Schools, Northwood, are also being expanded to offer an additional 216 places for pupils. A new stand alone building will accommodate 12 new classrooms, hall, studio, ICT suite, library, Design Technology room, kitchen and group spaces. The practical building completion is expected in early 2019.

The expansion work is part of the council's ambitious £260 million primary and secondary school building programme - one of the largest in London, to meet demand for school places in the borough as the local population continues to grow. The council has so far created 6,682 new primary school places since 2011. 

Councillor David Simmonds CBE, Hillingdon Council's Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Education and Children's Services, said: "We are putting families first by investing in school expansions to provide more places for local children where they are needed the most. We're proud to offer so many 'good' and 'outstanding' schools in Hillingdon, and our high quality educational facilities will give our young people the best start in life. We are also continuing to create places for secondary schools as demand grows."
