About Us Future of Cottesloe

The Cottesloe School is delighted to announce the recent approval of planning permission to improve its facilities. The school continues to grow in popularity and has agreed to meet the need for more school places in North Bucks. This expansion will see Year 7 to 11 expanding to 210 students, an increase of 20 students per year group, over the coming years. This significant development marks a milestone in the ongoing commitment to provide quality education infrastructure for the growing local community.

The approved plans include the construction of new state-of-the-art facilities, additional classrooms and a new block of toilets. There will be some internal remodelling to improve our Sixth Form experience, create a new Science laboratory and refurbish an existing toilet block. The expansion aims to accommodate the increasing demand for secondary education in the region and enhance the learning environment for students and staff.

Headteacher Simon Jones expressed his excitement about the approved expansion, stating, "This is fantastic news for our school and the local community. The additional facilities will enable us to continue to improve the school by enriching the learning experience for our students."

Construction is scheduled to begin in the coming months, with completion expected in September 2024. The project will be carried out with careful consideration for environmental sustainability and in close collaboration with local stakeholders to minimise disruption to the surrounding area.

We appreciate the concerns raised by the local residents and Councillors regarding traffic and parking. The vast majority of our students come to school by bus and as part of the project, we will continue to work with all parties and review our school travel plan. Parents and carers are regularly reminded about our dedicated arrangements for drop off and collection via Aylesbury Road.

This development will have a positive impact on the educational opportunities available to students and the wider community.
