Increased school places at a Burnley Primary School

Thursday, May 16, 2019

The capacity of a popular Burnley primary school is to be increased.

Lancashire County Council's Cabinet has agreed to temporarily expand Briercliffe Primary School in Burnley. This expansion will be provided using existing accommodation from September 2020.

The school will then expand permanently from September 2021 through the provision of additional permanent accommodation on the existing school site.

This expansion means that the school, on Delamere Road, will be able to accept 15 extra pupils in reception class each September from 2020.

The number of pupils at the school will increase from 45 to 60 in each year group, growing the total number of places at the school from 315 to 420. The need for additional primary school places is due to a rise in the birth rate coupled with the effect of housing development in the area.
