Plans approved for £2.5m investment in North Hinksey CE Primary School

Pupils at North Hinksey CE Primary School are to benefit from the transformation of its classroom environment.  

Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet has today, Tuesday 19 March, approved a programme of work to replace existing prefabricated structures with permanent classrooms, a significant step in enhancing the overall infrastructure of the school.

The investment is through £1.4 million provided by the county council – secured from housing developers – with the remaining funding coming from the Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust.

Councillor John Howson, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Young People’s Services, said: “These are exciting plans for North Hinksey CE Primary School, part of our ongoing commitment to provide the best possible learning environment for children. When completed, North Hinksey will have a first class teaching environment where pupils can thrive."

The school is an academy, part of the Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust, and it will manage the design and delivery of the project.

Anne Dellar, Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust’s Chief Executive, said: “North Hinksey is a wonderful primary school already providing an education of the highest quality, and further developing the classrooms will ensure that the learning environments are the best they can be for the children and school community.”
