27/10/2020 - School Places Capacity and Feasibility Study ref: 671    Recommendations Approved


To progress Stage 2 of the feasibility study for our secondary school provision

Initial findings from Stage One of the feasibility study identify Catmose College as the favoured site for Phase 2 Study because of the current conditions of the existing modern new-build school and this would consolidate the investment that has already been made in recent extensions on the site, with fewer potential planning constraints than at the other two sites.
The site is centrally located within the County which is reflected in the majority of admissions for this school being from Rutland families and would therefore more readily address Rutland’s pupil place sufficiency need.

The Council commissioned a multi-disciplinary consultant to undertake a Stage 1 feasibility study to investigate expansion options for school growth at the three secondary schools situated at Catmose College, Oakham, Casterton College, Great Casterton and Uppingham Community College, Uppingham. This was completed and approved by Cabinet in July 2020.

Stage Two of the feasibility study for school expansion at the preferred site of Catmose College, Oakham to deliver additional places through the development of an 8 Form Entry secondary school as identified through Stage One of the study. The Phase 2 study is anticipated to be concluded by end of November 2020.

The cost of Stage 2 feasibility will be circa £18,000 and will be funded from Schools Capital Maintenance.

A full report will be taken to cabinet and Council for project initiation once the feasibility is completed.
