Big plans, bright future

Current consultations



We believe that consultation is crucial in helping us make decisions which will affect the Borough and that consultation has a key role in informing and influencing our decision making and activities. Listed below are our current consultations:  


Statutory Proposal to increase school places at Northfield School

The local authority has experienced an increase in demand for places in the school and this has been reflected in the admissions of Year 7 pupils in particular in September 2016 and 2017.

Given the current number of children on role and future trends, we propose that the size of the school should be set to accommodate up to a maximum of 1650 pupils. We believe that this additional capacity of 300 places will enable us to meet the requirements of children within this planning area and the Borough alike.

In order to accommodate the increase in student numbers we propose that a separate Year 7 School building be built on site. This will allow up to 330 Year 7 students to be educated in the new part of the school from September 2018 onwards. This will help reduce congestion currently experienced across the whole school site, improve teaching facilities, support primary children as they transition into secondary, shorten dining waiting times and increase parking on site.

Stockton-On-Tees Borough Council invites you to comment upon the proposal to increase the number of school places at Northfield School from 1350 to 1650 to accommodate the increase in demand of children.
