Theresa welcomes expansion plan for Lowbrook Academy

Theresa May has welcomed plans for the expansion of Lowbrook Academy, which will allow it to take in additional children this September and to permanently become a two-form entry school. Lowbrook Academy is a popular local school in Maidenhead and a number of parents were concerned when their children missed out on places this year despite living close by.

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead have been working with the school to find an agreeable solution that would ensure more parents got a place at their preferred school, both this year and into the future. The Royal Borough is investing £1.6m to secure Lowbrook Academy as a 420 place school for the long term, starting with the admission of 60 pupils this September.

In response to the concerns of local parents, Theresa held a number of meetings with Lowbrook Academy and the Royal Borough to discuss whether it would be possible to expand the school.

Commenting, Theresa said: “I am delighted that an agreement has been reached that will allow Lowbrook Academy to expand and take in more children, not just for this year but for future years as well. I congratulate the school and the Royal Borough for all the work that has gone into this. It is great news that more children will have the chance to attend this excellent school and more parents will be able to secure their first choice place.”
