May 10, 2024, BBC News: New purpose-built school in Huddersfield to boost SEND places

N. England

Forty extra places are to be created at newly built school in Huddersfield for children and young people with complex autism.

Woodley School and College will relocate to a new site as part of a "major investment" by Kirklees Council into special school provision.

The move will increase the number of places for pupils aged five to 15 from 140 to 180.

A consultation has begun on the preferred site for the school.

Currently, Woodley School and College is at a site off Dog Kennel Bank and operates from multiple buildings. . . .

The council said before it applied for planning permission it wanted to hear people's views and urged them to take part in the consultation, which runs until 17 June.
