Cllr Anita Cranmer, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills at Buckinghamshire Council said: “We look forward to the building of this school for our Kingsbrook Community, which will not only provide for our vision of the best outcomes for every young person in Kingsbrook but will also link with our climate change aspiration for Bucks’ a better place in which to live.

The Council supports the Skills agenda and is pleased that many jobs and skills apprenticeships will be generated through this build process to support the growth economy in Buckinghamshire.”
