School Places Strategy 2022 - 2027

Wiltshire Council is currently reviewing and updating its School Places Strategy and Implementation Plan for 2022- 2027.

The strategy looks at:

  • The need for places across Wiltshire and will provide a framework for considering opening and where appropriate, closing schools and defining the size of schools.
  • It looks at implementing new school competition arrangements and supporting the development of academies, university technical colleges and, where appropriate, free schools.

All children and young people living in Wiltshire are entitled to the highest quality education. This strategy will help us to secure school places for pupils and provide high quality school buildings and facilities of an appropriate size and standard.
