A building project that would see Northamptonshire County Council invest £1 million in a Kettering village school will be discussed at a meeting next week (TUES 8 NOV)

A meeting of the council’s cabinet will be asked to approve plans to expand Mawsley Primary School by just over 100 places to address current and projected housing growth and the subsequent demand for school places.

A cabinet paper asks cabinet to:

  • approve the proposed expansion of Mawsley Primary School from 315 to 420 places
  • agree the £1million capital project scheme for the school so it can proceed to the construction phase

If approved, this will be the third extension at the primary school and will bring it up to the full two forms of entry with 14 classrooms, a total of 420 pupils. The current double mobile on site will be removed.

The budget for the works is £1m funded through capital grant and includes a £2k contribution from the school’s budget.

Planning permission for the project was granted on 21 October 2011.
