Description

The site is owned by Unity Schools Partnership (the Trust) and is the former Parkway Middle School, which was declared surplus by the Secretary of State for Education in May 2023. The Trust operates Castle Manor Academy located directly to the east of the site.

The site is physically distinct from Castle Manor Academy. It is accessible independently via Park Road. It is considered to be suitable for residential development subject to the necessary planning consents.


The site is generally level, broadly rectangular in shape and extends to 4.0 hectares (9.9 acres). It comprises predominantly open green space that was previously used as school playing fields, along with associated educational buildings of the former school and an unoccupied former caretaker’s house.


A single-storey school building (c.3,341sqm GEA) and a former caretaker’s bungalow (c.119sqm GEA) are located in the northern part of the site, along with a tarmacadam car park. The car park is accessed via two entry points off Park Road. The western corner of the site contains three disused tennis courts and a single basketball court, with a combined approximate footprint of c.2,676sqm.


The site is bounded by a mix of mature hedgerows, trees and fencing.
The site and school building is currently used for community and administrative purposes under short-term license agreements. Vacant possession will be provided upon completion.
