Change to opening date for Barton Farm Academy
After careful consideration, the University of Winchester Academy Trust and Hampshire County Council have taken the decision to postpone the planned opening date for the new Barton Farm Academy until September 2018.
Based on the progress of the development and the planned occupancy figures supplied by CALA Homes, the new primary school will not be required until this date.
The Admissions arrangements determined by Hampshire County Council included changes to the catchment areas of Kings Worthy Primary School and Weeke Primary School in order to incorporate the Barton Farm development and create the new catchment area for the school. With the decision to delay the opening of the new school until September 2018, the required catchment changes will not become operational until the school is receiving applications for the September 2018 admission round, during the academic year 2017/18.
