Walton High @ Brooklands update

Walton High, in partnership with Milton Keynes Council, has gone out to tender to identify the construction company that will design and build the new school at Brooklands.  Three companies on the Council’s framework are competing for the £18 million contract for the first phase of the building which is scheduled to open in September 2016.
 
Milton Keynes Education Trust’s Chief Executive, Michelle Currie, said “This is a very exciting development for the Trust as Walton High looks to offer more young people the opportunity to benefit from the exceptional learning opportunities and experiences the school offers.  In 2013 Walton High was ranked in the top 1% of schools for the progress students make from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4.”

MKET Primary Alternative Provision Free School

Support from primary schools across Milton Keynes for the forest school inspired alternative provision free school continues to grow. Due to the unique nature of the curriculum to be offered, finding a suitable site within Milton Keynes has been a challenge. However, a location with great potential has now been identified and the Education Funding Agency is in negotiation with the landowners to secure a long term lease. To avoid the need to open in temporary accommodation, the school is now scheduled to open in September 2015.
