Education is an important part of the sustainability strategy for Nansledan to ensure that children can be schooled close to home and to meet growing demand for primary school places in Newquay.
Nansledan includes a new primary school called Skol Nansledan that will accommodate 420 pupils in 14 classrooms. It is scheduled to open in September 2019. Click here to visit the school’s website.
The consortium building Nansledan is also working closely with the Duchy and local education providers to develop support for higher education placements and apprenticeships schemes. This will foster local skills, trades and professions.
“We are taking the sustainable ethos of Nansledan to inform and shape the school curriculum in a way that not only complements the surrounding development but reinforces what Nansledan has to say about how we lead our lives. The Duchy has demonstrated how to do things differently at Nansledan and that resonates with our own mission to innovate and create a world class centre of excellence for primary school education here in Cornwall” – Andrew Fielder, CEO Aspire Academy Trust
