Disposal of playing fields, former North site of Phoenix Collegiate – Friar Park Road Proposal

Phoenix Collegiate is seeking consent to dispose of the playing fields at Friar Park Road under Section 77 of the School Standards and Framework Act. Why these changes are sought by the school: The playing fields of the former Phoenix Collegiate, North site have not been utilised by the school or other local schools since the academic year commencing September 2013.

The land forms part of the Local Authority redevelopment plan and in line with this we propose to dispose of this land for housing development. Please note this disposal of land will not impact upon the existing Pulse Soccer facility.

Benefit to the school and local community from disposal: We would like to re-invest funds raised to improve sporting and teaching facilities at the Clarkes Lane site including two additional full sized grass football pitches and additional classrooms to support the curriculum needs of our growing school. These will greatly benefit our existing and future students and also the local community, once we are able to re-open our facilities post Covid.

Consultation commences: 09.00, Monday 16th November 2020

Please respond by 15.00, Friday 4th December 2020 to be submitted by email to  

Responses to be reviewed by the School Governing body during week commencing 7/12/20 to allow time for discussion and further consultation if required.
