Special Schools development project

Wiltshire Council is making a £33m investment in special schools in north Wiltshire, working with our construction partners Willmott Dixon to provide up to 400 places for SEND pupils aged from early years to post-16 on the Rowdeford site by September 2023.

Wiltshire Council wants to ensure that all children and young people with SEND have access to a first class education for SEND pupils. The project is part of a wider plan to bring Larkrise, St Nicholas and Rowdeford schools together. They joined together as one maintained school over three sites from 1 September 2020, using a temporary  name of North Wiltshire School.

Here you can find out information about the project including newsletters and frequently asked questions, and find opportunities to get involved in working with us to have your say on the design of the new buildings.
