Pre-planning Consultation – Proposal to build a new 1.5 form entry primary school (315 places) together with a resource provision for an additional 8 children on Land West of London Road, Waterlooville

Closed on

Hampshire County Council wish to consult with you ahead of the proposal to submit a planning application for a new primary school on a new housing development at Land West of London Road, Waterlooville

The proposed new primary school is planned to open in September 2025 and would admit up to 30 places for Year R (age 4+) and will grow over time to a total of 45 pupils per year group, an overall total of 315 pupils. The school will also provide places for 8 pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

The demand for additional places arises as a result of the development of 3,000 dwellings at Land West of London Road, Waterlooville. There was a need for two new primary schools to meet the expected demand from the development, the first of which was Berewood Primary School which opened in September 2014 as a 2fe (420 place) school. The second primary school will be a 1.5fe (315 place) school, intended to open in September 2025.
