Planning permission was granted by the Planning Committee at Windsor & Maidenhead Council on 6 July 2016 to develop an exciting new state-of-the-art building for Braywick Court Park School in Hibbert Road.
Braywick Court School opened in September 2014 in the buildings of the old Winbury School, which closed in 2011. The school is planning to move to temporary accommodation at Riverside School in Maidenhead for a year while the works on the site is undertaken. It is anticipated that the new building will be available from September 2017, when the school will be up to 120 pupils.
Teachers, parents, governors and students of Braywick Court School wish to thank the local community and Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead councillors who approved plans to build a new modern school on the Hibbert Road site by 10 votes to 0.
Over 450 local residents wrote to the Council in support of Braywick Court School’s application for a one form of entry primary school serving the needs of the local community, whilst allowing for the retention of the Braywick Nature Centre.
Gemma Donnelly, Head Teacher at Braywick Court School, said:
“We are really grateful to the local community who really got behind the parents and teachers in supporting the school. There has been a school on this site for nearly 200 years and securing planning permission will help ensure both the future educational use of this site and the future of Braywick Court School.”
Pupils at the school are equally delighted with the outcome:
