Local MP for Cheadle constituency has welcomed the Department of Education’s approval today of proposals to build a new primary school in Cheadle Hulme.
Expected to open in 2016, Cheadle Hulme Primary School will eventually have capacity for 420 pupils.
The new school is a free school, which means that it is set up by community organisations or parent groups. The group behind the proposals is the Cheadle Hulme Education Trust, the group behind the existing Cheadle Hulme High School.
Local MP for Cheadle constituency, Mark Hunter, commented on the news saying:
‘I am delighted to hear that plans for the new Cheadle Hulme Primary School have been approved today. Cheadle constituency, and Cheadle Hulme in particular, is short of primary school places as more people recognise what a great place our local community is to raise a family.
‘I look forward to seeing these proposals being taken forward and providing another excellent primary school for Cheadle Hulme.’
