Stanway School plans a £6.9 million development which will let it take more students
A leading school has unveiled plans for a £6.9 million redevelopment.
Stanway School is to apply to Colchester Council for permission to demolish its dated Gainsborough block and build a new wing on the site.
The new block will allow it to increase its student numbers by 60 each year.
Co-head teacher Jonathan Bland said: “Children who live in our catchment area and go to our feeder schools are struggling to get places because of the demand.
“This will mean we can fulfil our responsibility to those pupils who almost feel it is a rite of passage to come here.
