News of Future Poundbury School Welcomed

Pencil

2:36pm 4th March 2014

Plans for a new School, accommodating 600 pupils, have been revealed to replace Damers First in Poundbury.

The Duchy of Cornwall has been developing proposals with the County Council and they've agreed an affordable budget to create the site.

It'll be built on the East side of Poundbury and take in around 600 pupils.

Estate Director for the Duchy of Cornwall in Dorchester Simon Conibear says its great news, and can't wait for the new School;

"This is something that's been in the Poundbury plan from day one but funding for schools is difficult at the moment and we understand the difficulties, but we have now passed the feasibility stage with Dorset County Council."

"I think the target date is September 2016 which is actually quite fast track for a School of this size. The details and the way it will look will actually be decided over the next 3 months."
