Since the beginning of September I have been in regular contact with the ‘Estates’ team at County Hall regarding some unused land next to our school behind Foundry House. I have been in discussions to see whether school can have the land to use as extra field space. I have just had confirmation this week that the land, two acres, will be transferred to us and we will be able to start using it over the coming months. We will be installing a new fence around the area and opening up gates from our field to the new field. Over the next few years we would like to develop the land in order to improve our sports facilities, ideally having a football pitch, a running track/lanes or a multi-use games area. Once we are able to access and use the land we will get a better idea of how we can best use it. Watch this space!
