(UK) Lincolnshire: New special school; $130M, 130 students

June 23, 2023, Lincolnshire County Council: New Lincoln primary school for special needs pupils

E. England

The new 130-place special school includes 15 classrooms alongside therapy spaces such as sensory and soft play. In addition, there is a large hall, a hydrotherapy pool and physiotherapy and medical rooms.

The new school complements St Christopher’s current Hykeham Road site, which will now be home to its secondary-aged pupils only. These current buildings are also being extensively redeveloped and remodelled as part of the improvement project.

Cllr Mrs Patricia Bradwell OBE, executive member for children's services, said: "The council wants to ensure that all children can access high-quality education, as near to their family and local community as possible.

"To help achieve that, we're investing £100m [$130M] in improving our special schools.

“St Christopher’s School has experienced significant growth over the last few years, and the new site will help ensure that there are sufficient spaces to meet local demand.

"This will mean more pupils with SEND can attend their local school rather than having to travel large distances for their education, which will be of great benefit to both the children and their families.”…
