Variation to planned admission number and expansion of physical capacity

Variation to Planned Admission Number and Expansion of Physical Capacity.

The Governors of Newton Abbot College are proposing to expand the physical capacity of the College to accommodate more students.  This proposed expansion is due to the demand for places at the College and a request from Devon County Council to provide more school places, increasing the Planned Admission Number for children requiring secondary school provision at Newton Abbot College.  To support the increase in students we are proposing an increase in the College’s infrastructure, by building a new teaching block, containing a multi-use hall space, classrooms, toilets and staff facilities.  We feel this expansion will enable us to further improve the teaching and learning experience and outcomes for the students at the College.  

Newton Abbot College will remain a fully comprehensive, mixed college catering for the needs of students in our own community.

If you have any comments or questions, please contact me by email The consultation period runs between Wednesday 20 March 2019 and Wednesday 15 May 2019.

Yours sincerely,

Deborrah Back
Chair of Governors
