School seeks permission for temporary five-year classrooms

Written on May 28, 2021

Newport Girls’ High School Academy would like to knock two rooms – “by far the smallest teaching spaces in the school” – into one and convert a canteen into a new classroom, but does not have the funding available, its planning agent says.

So instead the 577-pupil school plans to build a two-room demountable annex on a hard section of play area at the north side, and has applied for five-year consent.

Newport Town Council will be consulted about the plans, and Telford & Wrekin Council’s planning department will make its decision at a later date.
