The plans include a new sixth form centre (A) at the south-western end of the school’s curved frontage plus the addition of a dance studio (B) and further changing rooms (C) at the rear and side of the existing sports hall.
Approval of the plans opens the way for the school to seek funding for the new developments from the Learning and Skills Council.
Headmaster Dave Baker told The Journal:
“We are delighted that the planning application has been approved, as this is another step closer to us achieving what the community of Bradley Stoke wants and needs, which is 11-18 provision at Bradley Stoke Community School.”
The school is aiming to have the sixth form centre up and running by September 2010, so that the current Year 10 students (the oldest currently at BSCS) will have continuity of provision when they reach Year 12.
