Issue details

Buckinghamshire Council is building a new 1080 place secondary school on the Kingsbrook development in Aylesbury. The school will open in September 2022 with an initial intake of students of 6 forms of entry (up to 180 students) and then build up over time to its full capacity.  Section 6A of the Education and Inspections Act 2006 states that where a Local Authority identifies the need to establish a new school it must, in the first instance, seek proposals to establish an Academy.  The Local Authority holds the competition and decides on its preferred bidder to run the new school, however the final decision on the successful bidder is made by the Department for Education (DfE) and Regional Schools Commissioner (RSC). After the end of the competition when the LA have decided on their preferred bidder, we will forward details of our preferred bidder and details of all other bids received to the DfE and RSC.
