Community and Councillor Engagement

We engaged with a wide variety of people leading up to the bid and we’ll continue to do this, so we’re going to hold two community engagement in June 2023 to update you on the current position and the next steps. We also want to hear your thoughts, questions and ideas to help make the school as successful as possible.
