Images show what new £11m Bishop's Cleeve school could look like

Images have been revealed for the new £11 million primary school in Bishop's Cleeve, as final designs are set to be submitted for planning permission.

The school will be built on land to the north of the village next to the Old Farmers Arms on Evesham Road, and named Greenacres Primary Academy.

Greenacres Primary will initially open to 60 reception children at two forms of entry in September 2023.

Gloucestershire County Council said the school will be gradually expanded in line with housing growth to three forms of entry by 2030, and when full will teach 630 pupils.

The new purpose-built development has been designed by Roberts Limbrick architects and will be constructed to be carbon neutral, in line with the council's commitment to be a carbon neutral county by 2045.

Final designs for the school were revealed at a public drop-in event at Bishop's Cleeve Primary Academy on November 30.

Feedback on the final proposals will be used to help form a planning application for the new school, which is due to be submitted later this month.
