Wilmslow High School has been granted planning permission to build a new Learning Support Centre for students with additional needs, disabilities and special education needs (SEN).
The two storey extension will be added to the existing sixth form teaching block and provide 547 sqm of dedicated special needs teaching accommodation, over two floors, which is tailored to the particular needs of the students.
This will release three general teaching spaces, currently used for SEN teaching provision, which will be adapted to provide one additional general teaching classroom, a students services area, eight additional toilets, one disabled/staff toilet and a cleaners store.
Plans for the new can be viewed on the Cheshire East Council website by searching for planning reference 12/2997M.
It is hoped that work will commence shortly with a completion date of August 2013 ready for the new academic year in September 2013.
