Hillingdon plans new schools

Five new primary schools could be built and two others expanded under plans being considered by Hillingdon councillors.

The council sees a sustained increase ahead in the demand for places because of rising birth rates and people moving into the area. The plans which will be discussed at the next cabinet include four new primary schools in the south of the borough, and one on the RAF Uxbridge site, along with expansion of two schools in the Yiewsley and North Ruislip areas.

There has been a 10% increase in demand for primary school places over the last five years in the borough, a trend which the council believes will continue.

With pressure for places moving into secondary schools by September 2017, the Cabinet will be considering proposals to deal with this demand in the autumn.
