The new Fradley Park primary school will offer 210 primary and 26 nursery places. It will be run by the John Taylor Multi Academy Trust.

The two-storey, one-form-entry school will have nine classrooms, a library, catering area, indoor sports facilities and an outdoor multi-use games area and playground.

GF Tomlison has a £4.8m contract through the Staffordshire County Council framework and is being project managed by Entrust.

Construction is expected to be completed in July 2022, n time for the start of term in September. There are plans to expand it to two-form-entry in the future – doubling its capacity to 420 primary and 52 nursery places – to accommodate planned housing development in the local area.

Fradley Park is one of two school projects that GF Tomlinson has recently started works on; another primary school in Uttoxeter is also under way under the Staffordshire County Council framework.
