The consultation for the proposed enlargement of pupil roll, relocation and expansion of premises at Thurston Church of England Primary Academy has now closed.



Thedwastre Education Trust is consulting on the proposal to relocate and enlarge the premises of Thurston C of E Primary Academy from 210 places to 420 places. Proposals include a building project to accommodate the additional 210 pupils. The building work is planned to be completed by July 2021 ready for opening in September 2021.

The current Admission Number is 30 and the proposed Admission Number will be 60 with effect from September 2021.  


The proposed enlargement to the premises is driven by the need to accommodate additional pupils arising from new housing developments in the area.
