Is subject to call in?: Yes


The County Council has a statutory duty to provide sufficient school places for all children who need a place.


St Philip Howard Catholic School is a 6 form entry (6FE) 11-18 Secondary School with a 6th form. The school has grown in recent years to meet the demand for places which has led to the requirement for more teaching and administrative space, as well as washroom facilities. The school has continued to take additional children over and above their Published Admission Number (PAN) and projections indicate an ongoing need for the additional places created meaning additional accommodation is required to support the increased pupil numbers.


The school is proposing to deliver a new teaching block incorporating 8 classrooms, office space, toilets and a lift for disabled access.


Section 106 funds have been received totalling £970,000 which must be spent on additional educational infrastructure and/or equipment at St Philip Howard Catholic School. The demand for places is high and the desire to provide the best possible experience for all students is the key driver for this build.


Approval is required for the allocation of Section 106 funding from the Capital Programme to enable the project to proceed.


The Director of Property and Assets has approved:


(1) The passporting of £970,000 of received funds to St Philip Howard Catholic School in accordance with the relevant Section 106 Agreements to fund the work outlined in Section 2.1 of the report, and


(2) The settlement and completion of the Development and Funding agreement as a condition for the transfer of the funds.
