Kingsley Fields Development (also known as Kingsbourne), Nantwich Pre Launch Consultation for New Primary School 

The Local Authority has a statutory duty to ensure that there are sufficient and suitable primary and secondary places for children resident to its area. Similar to other areas in Cheshire East, Nantwich has been facing a growth in the demand for primary places driven by an increasing pupil population and new housing developments. 

The proposal is for a new 1 form entry primary school to be built which will provide an additional 210 places for Reception to Year 6 pupils with a phased opening as from September 2024. This new provision aims to provide a new school at the heart of the Kingsley Fields Development.

This new primary school will lessen pressures for oversubscribed schools in the Nantwich Town planning area and also aim to reduce the need to travel across the town. 

Please refer to the pre-launch consultation document which provides further information regarding the proposal.

We very much hope that you will let us know your views on this proposal as your feedback will help us formulate and finalise the specification for the new school. All feedback will be collated and reported back to the DfE as part of the Free School Presumption Process.
