The campaign to get Bramhall High School on the School Rebuilding Programme has been a success after the Government announced it's inclusion today.
Tom Morrison, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Spokesperson for the area, led the campaign for the school to be rebuilt, which had hundreds of local residents and parents signing a petition.
The school was forced to close huge parts of its estate in 2023 after RAAC concrete was found in the building, leaving hundreds of children having to learn in temporary cabins.
Although the school has been announced as part of the rebuild programme, it is still unclear whether a new school will be built or if it will just be the areas affected with RAAC. Whilst the programme is stated as a 10 year programme, meaning Bramhall High School won't necessarily be immediately rebuilt.
The Liberal Democrats are saying the Government now needs to set the timeline for work starting and ensure that funding is for a brand new school in Bramhall. Tom Morrison has written to the Secretary of State asking for immediate clarification.
Tom Morrison said: "This is great news and truly deserved after all the work from local campaigners, parents, staff and Liberal Democrat councillors in the area.
"The Liberal Democrats on Stockport Council have been pushing Government to get Bramhall High on the rebuild programme for sometime now, and I am delighted the Government has listened.
"Hundreds of residents and parents signed our petition to get a new school for Bramhall, so it is vital that the Government confirm the timeline it is now working to and whether this will mean we get the school that staff, children and the community deserve."
