The site acquisition process for the school is now complete. A planning application for the permanent accommodation for the school was lodged in January 2019.  A request for additional information received from the local authority was responded to on 26 April 2019 and a decision is awaited.  The timeframe for delivery of the school will be dependent on the grant of planning permission.

Officials in my Department will continue to keep the school authority updated on progress.
