To consider the report of the Sufficiency and Participation Team, Children and Families Service, on a proposal to expand Benton Park Secondary School from a capacity of 1225 to 1500 students by increasing the admission number from 245 to 300 with effect from September 2021. The schools current SEN and 6th Form provision is unaffected by this proposal.


The report describes the proposal, brought forward to meet the local authority’s duty to ensure sufficiency of school places and the representations received during the four week formal consultation period 19th November to 16th December 2018.


The report seeks consideration of the response to the representations received and a recommendation to the Executive Board to assist in reaching a final decision on the proposal.
