Cash for schools in Brent

LB Brent has won around £15m from the Government to create more primary school places.

Significant growth in population and rising birth rates in Brent have created pressure on Primary Schools. The Harrow Observerreports that in 2006 there were 3,000 applications for reception places. That number has grown to 3,400 this year, and is forecast to rise to 3,600 by 2013.

Wembley Primary School, which opened in September 2008 following an amalgamation of the former infant and junior schools, has helped to provide an extra seven primary classrooms. The ARK Academy will also provide another 14 classrooms when it opens next year.
