West Sussex County Council has submitted a reserved matters planning application to create an ‘all-through’ primary and secondary school as part of the Burgess Hill Brookleigh development (formerly known as the Northern Arc).

The school will be fully inclusive and include a Special Support Centre to support children with special educational needs and disabilities attending the new school.

The University of Brighton Academies Trust has been appointed to run the new all-through school. West Sussex County Council is creating the secondary school element and the primary school element, which will be designed and built later, is being created by Homes England.

The design of the new secondary school building aims to achieve Passivhaus certification, which sets the standard for low-carbon emissions, use of sustainable energy, and helping to reduce the impact of climate change. The building will be highly energy efficient and generate its own energy on-site using nearly 1000 solar photovoltaic panels, ensuring no use of fossil fuels in the running of the building.

The scheme has been designed to protect, conserve and enhance the rich biodiversity found on the site, and you can view the proposed design of the school at
