Thank you to those who gave their views on the location of the new school.

The feedback helped shape a proposal and on 5 September 2023, the Education, Children and Families Committee approved that a statutory consultation be undertaken regarding the proposed relocation of St Catherine’s Roman Catholic Primary School to a new site on the South Neighbourhood Office site on Captain’s Road.  Find out more about the progress of this consultation


Due to the poor condition of St Catherine’s RC Primary School, capital investment was agreed back in 2019.

Taking on board previous engagement and feasibility work undertaken in the area and the Council ‘whole place’ approach, we would like to explore ways in which the new school can support wider use, providing additional community benefit and value for the local area.

At this stage in the process, we want to hear your views on the location of the new school and what would benefit the wider community and encourage use of the new school as more than just a building for school activity.
