New Special School for King's Lynn

King's Lynn is getting a new school for children with special needs and it could start taking students as soon as September 2016.

Norfolk County Council says the £4.5million academy would be built on the North Lynn Industrial Estate.

It will hopefully provide 100 places for children between 4 and 16.

James Joyce, Chairman of Norfolk County Council’s Children’s Services Committee, said:

“Not only would this new facility provide an excellent and modern learning environment for our young people but also, by providing specialist resources locally, fewer Norfolk children would need to travel long distances to get to school, which is in their best interests as well as being more cost efficient.

“This is a much needed development for education in West Norfolk and another step towards our goal of providing a good school for every Norfolk learner.” 

Cllr David Collis, County Councillor for King’s Lynn North and Central division, said:

“This is a huge boost for King’s Lynn and the North Lynn Industrial Estate is an excellent site for this new school. I’m very pleased that our town is set to be the location for such a forward thinking project and I’m certain that we’ll feel its benefit in King’s Lynn and in Norfolk as a whole.”
