Loughton: Two Schools To Be Expanded
Two Essex schools are going to be expanded with a need for more pupil places in the county.
The County Council plans would see both Alderton Infants and Junior schools in Loughton enlarged to take in an extra 210 pupils.
A public presentation will take place on Thursday 16th January at the infant school between 2.45pm and 6.30pm.
Parents, local residents and other interested parties will be able to review the design details and layout of the new school building which features some remodelling work, as well as a new build.
The proposal for the infant school includes two new classrooms, one group room, accessible toilet, reception office and external remodelling.
The infant school capacity will grow from 180 places to 270.
The proposal for the junior school includes a new library, two new group rooms and the refurbishment of four classrooms.
The junior school capacity will grow from 240 places to 360.
We're being told all feedback will be considered as part of a consultation.
