Plans for new Aylesbury primary school move forward

Plans for Aylesbury's newest primary school are moving forward, as a bidder is being chosen to run it.

420 children will get a place at the new school on Kingsbrook, along with 52 at the nursery, when it opens in September next year.

The County Council's picked an Academy Trust already running a school in Wycombe.

Around 2,500 homes are being built on Kingsbrook, in three phases, with provision for two primaries and one secondary school.

From April to June 2018, the Local Authority held a School Competition to invite bidders willing to run the new school, to submit bids.

A total of eight bids were received and following a shortlisting exercise, four bidders were invited to a panel interview. The panel interviews took place in September 2018.

The four short-listed organisations were asked to give a presentation and answer a number of questions.

Following the interviews, the DfE sent a due diligence report to the Local Authority on the four short-listed bids.

After a detailed evaluation of each organisation’s presentation, answers to questions and due diligence report from the DfE, Buckinghamshire County Council has chosen Inspiring Futures Partnership Trust (formerly known as Chepping View Primary Academy Trust) as their preferred bidder.
