The provision of permanent accommodation for a Post Primary School in Enfield is being delivered under my Department’s Design and Build Programme. This delivery programme uses a professional external Project Management team to progress the project through the stages of architectural planning, tendering and construction.

The project is currently at an advanced stage of architectural planning which includes the preparation of the planning application. As with all school projects, the exact timeframe for delivery of the project will be dependent on the grant of planning permission.

The school will open in 2020 in suitable interim accommodation pending delivery of its permanent building.
