School Expansion Plans

Trafford Council has a duty to provide school places for every child resident within the borough. This duty has been met by expanding a number of Primary Schools across the borough to meet local demand. Over the last 10 years Altrincham and Sale have experienced the greatest demand within Trafford and although birth rates are now levelling off, there is still significant inbound migration to access Trafford primary schools.


Therefore, Trafford Council are now proposing the physical expansion of Moorlands Junior School to move the admission number from 60 (2 forms of entry) to 90 (3 forms of entry).


The Council held preliminary discussions with the School and then the School joined with Council Officers to consider submissions from 3 contractors before appointing ISG Ltd. and their associated architects, Ellis Williams Architects.  A series of meetings has been held to allow the School to participate in developing the proposal alongside Council Officers and the appointed Design and Build Contractor. 


Stakeholders were invited to the school on Tuesday 22nd February 2022 and the informal consultation now continues online.


You are invited to comment on the proposed plans accessible via the link below. Comments should be submitted by 9th March 2022.
