New primary academy - competition

Kings Gate - Amesbury 

We have identified the need for a new primary school to meet the demand arising from the new Kings Gate, Amesury housing development near Salisbury from September 2019. In consultation with the Regional Schools Commissioner the Local Authority is running a competition to select a trust sponsor for the new school.

The key components of the selection process are set out in the background information and school specification document this can be found in the download section. Prospective sponsors of the new school must comply with rigorous suitability assessments and due diligence. Bids will only be considered from approved trust sponsors.

Following bid assessments shortlisted applicants will be invited to an interview in October 2017. Wiltshire council will then forward details of the preferred sponsor trust to the Regional School Commissioner for approval by the Secretary of State. We expect a final decision soon after.

If you would like to submit a bid, refer to the background information and specification document.

Please contact jodie.maslen@wiltshire.gov.uk for further information. 

The closing date to submit your bid is 12 noon on Thursday 21 September 2017
