Hadleigh – One Step Closer To Gaining A New School


With so many exciting changes happening in Hadleigh thanks to the regeneration, we are pleased to learn that plans to re-build a junior school in Hadleigh are one step closer to being accepted.

The plans to rebuild 100-year-old Hadleigh Junior School in Church Road will allow the school to be brought safely into the 21st century whilst saving thousands of pounds in maintaining their old site.

If the plans are consented as hoped, the new school will be constructed on the current school’s playing fields. Whilst 6.8 acres of the school’s land will be put up for sale to help fund the redevelopment.

A further 3 acres of land – owned by Essex County Council – located in Scrub Lane, will also be put up for sale. This land sits adjacently to Hadleigh Junior School.

The school governing body released a statement declaring “The school has the opportunity to consider a new school build through capitalising on the sale by Essex County Council.”

With a number of months still to wait before a decision is confirmed, pupils have made their feelings known through designing their ideal school and presenting their pictures to planners.

Whilst architects have spoken to governors, teachers and parents to gain feedback on their expectations of a new school in Hadleigh.

With the academy school being built over a century ago, a rebuild would provide modern-day class rooms as well as up-to-date facilities for Hadleigh Junior school children – something they currently do not have.

Here at Hadleigh.net, we are keeping our fingers crossed that the new school plans are accepted.
