School place planning in Lichfield District

The district of Lichfield is made up of two distinct areas:

A two tier education system, with primary (4-11 years) and secondary (11-18 years) schools, operates throughout the Lichfield district.

For the purpose of school place planning the district is broken down into smaller planning areas which are used to plan the number of school places required. These have been grouped based on the geographical location of schools, and by assessing pupil movement between schools and catchment areas.

 


Lichfield

Lichfield including Fradley, has 19 primary schools and 3 secondary schools.

Anna Seward Primary School, 1FE (210 places) opened in September 2023 with 30 Reception places, increasing by one year group each year, all year groups will be operational in September 2029. 

Fradley Park Primary & Nursery School, 1FE (210 places) opened in September 2022 with 30 Reception places, increasing by one year group each year, all year groups will be operational in September 2028.

Streethay Primary School, 1FE (210 places) opened in September 2019 with 30 Reception and Year 1 places, increasing by one year group each year, with all year groups operational in September 2024.  

There are currently proposals to open one more new primary school within the next five years on the St. John's Grange development in September 2025. The school will initially provide an additional 30 Reception places each academic year from opening.

Expansions completed in 2021 in two Lichfield secondary schools mean that 60 additional Year 7 places are available each year.

In the longer term additional school places will be required at both primary and secondary level.

Burntwood

New schools

Within the district one new primary school is proposed to be delivered within the next five years.

Lichfield: St. John's Grange, Lichfield – Primary

A 2FE (420 place) primary school is being delivered for September 2025 but will operate as a 1FE (210 place) primary school until the requirement for further places is identified after the five-year period.

A public consultation on the opening of the new school was completed in October 2023, a summary of representations received has been published.

The planning application (reference SCC/23/0162/FUL-MAJ) for the new school has been submitted and further details of the school can be found on our planning applications website.

We are now considering proposals from academy trusts to deliver high quality education at this school.


School expansions

Lichfield: Fradley Park Primary & Nursery School

This new school has the capability to be expanded to 2FE (420 places). The expansion will be delivered in line with the growth in pupil numbers in Fradley from further committed housing development. Delivery could be from September 2026.
