Consultation to Increase Pupil Numbers for Thomas Bewick School at Site 2 (West Denton Way)


The Trustees of Prosper Learning Trust and the Local Advisory Committee of Thomas Bewick School are consulting on the creation of additional places for Thomas Bewick School to meet immediate and longer term need for pupils with autism from September 2022.  Following discussions with the Local Authority regarding the need for additional autism places across the City, the recommendation is to achieve this through expanding accommodation availability at the school’s site on West Denton Way. 

More information about the expansion plans can be found on our website
