LGA Warning of Looming Secondary School Place Shortage

Eco-building block at Shotton Hall Academy

The Local Government Association (LGA) has recently reiterated its warning that there is a potential shortage of secondary school places “looming” in England, as an increased population moves up from the primary sector. The LGA claims that 12 councils will be over capacity by 2018, rising to nearly half of all councils over the next five-year period. In aggregate, secondary school places will be almost 8,000 short by September 2018, rising to a 125,000 shortfall by 2022.

In addition, largely due to the age of many of our school buildings, internal environmental conditions are often poor and air quality is unsatisfactory.
