A Planning Application has now been submitted to Wolverhampton City Council to build a new, purpose-built, co-educational Infant School within the existing Wolverhampton Grammar School campus.
The proposed new eco-friendly Infant School will offer state-of-the-art facilities in a multi-million pound new development. If successful, the proposed new School will offer:
The proposed new Infant School will also initially create around 20 new jobs and further opportunities for local suppliers. Wolverhampton Grammar School currently employs around 200 staff working on a full time and part time basis. By enhancing our provision to include an Infant School we will be able to offer even more attractive, secure jobs, as well as providing business for local suppliers adding to our local economic impact.
Wolverhampton Grammar School intends to introduce additional sustainable transport arrangements including a walking bus from the current Junior and Senior School buildings. Elder siblings will also walk younger brothers and sisters to the infant school (rather than be dropped off by car) as part of a School wide Travel Plan to encourage the use of cycles, public transport, car sharing, walking and sustainable travel in general for all students and users of its facilities.
Philip Sims, Chairman of Wolverhampton Grammar School said “Wolverhampton Grammar School has a first class reputation and supports the City in attracting aspirational families and high achieving staff to the local area. As a major employer in the City, the creation of our Infant School will mean we can offer even more jobs, as well as opportunities to local businesses and suppliers.”
Kathy Crewe-Read, Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School added “The early years of a child’s education lay strong foundations for their future health, happiness and social as well as educational development. We will take the best of 500 years’ experience of teaching and combine it with the latest research to create an Infant School that will be the best learning environment possible for children from the age of 4.”
Wolverhampton Grammar School has now submitted plans to the City Council’s Planning Department for the self-contained School.
