Temporary Site at Balcarras
The High School Leckhampton, due to open in September 2021, has unfortunately been delayed until May 2022. In these circumstances Balcarras, the new school’s sponsor, has a duty to educate the 120 pupils who will be allocated to the High School Leckhampton by the local authority and who will have no other place within the existing secondary school system. To meet this urgent need, Balcarras and the LA have agreed to locate an additional building on the Balcarras School site to provide excellent accommodation for these pupils until the High School Leckhampton is opened the following year.
A beautifully designed two storey building with very low environmental impact (zero carbon, A+ rated) will house four classrooms, office space and ancillary services to ensure the children have outstanding accommodation and an excellent experience of their first year of secondary education. This specially designed building will be sited well within the boundary of Balcarras School, with minimal impact on views from any neighbouring houses.
