School Organisation and Strategic Development

Hampshire County Council has a statutory duty to ensure a sufficiency of school places for Hampshire children

The Strategic Development team is responsible for prioritising and managing capital investment across Children's Services. The team delivers investment projects for Children and Families and Education.

As part of the County Council’s statutory duty, the Strategic Development Team plans, commissions and organises school places in conjunction with the Regional Department for Education (DfE) Directors. This work promotes the raising of standards and helps to improve the outcomes for all Hampshire children.
