Proposals have been outlined for a new 750 pupil secondary school to open on the site of former Pye Bank School in 2018.

Sheffield City Council have created 4500 primary school places citywide but currently many Burngreave pupils have to catch buses to surrounding areas. Prior to 2018 additional school places will need to be created at Fir Vale, Hinde House, Parkwood and Firth Park secondary schools, with potential additional places at schools in South West Sheffield.

Burngreave Councillor Jackie Drayton, Sheffield Council’s cabinet member for children, young people and families said:

“All these proposals are a direct result of widespread consultation with schools and communities. We have listened to your proposals and now we want to act on them.”

Councillor Drayton said there will be widespread consultation with all parties involved, including parents and affected communities. A final decision is expected in December.

On 22nd October at 5.30 pm at the Vestry Hall, there will be a Burngreave ward meeting with a workshop sharing options for increasing local school places and an opportunity for you to share your views.
