Combined forces for new school

Plans to combine Gleadless nursery and infant and junior school on one site are in line for council approval next Tuesday.

The project is due to be carried out in two phases - the first seeing the construction of the nursery and infant building alongside the existing junior, then the rebuilding of the junior.

At present the split site means pupils have to cross Hollinsend Road to use the hall and catering facilities in the junior school.

Most of the playing fields will be retained.
