Notification of Decision to Permanently Expand Bleak Hill Primary School

On 9th January, 2019 St Helens Council’s Cabinet considered the outcomes of the statutory consultation on the proposed expansion of Bleak Hill Primary School (a copy of the full report can be viewed at https://www.sthelens.gov.uk/schools-education/pupil-place-planning/).

The Cabinet determined that the permanent expansion of Bleak Hill Primary School would enable the Council to continue to discharge its duty to ensure a sufficiency of high quality primary school places in the local area and therefore agreed that the permanent expansion of the School should commence in September 2019 with 75 pupils to be admitted into Reception Year then 90 pupils each Reception Year from September 2020 onwards.

The Council will now appoint a contractor to progress Phase 1 (the Hall) of the build to full design stage. This will be subject to the usual planning and statutory approval process and we will keep parents informed of progress.


Thank you for visiting our school website.

If you are new to our school we offer you a very warm and friendly welcome. If you already have a child in school we are pleased to renew the links between us.

Bleak Hill aims to be a very open school, encouraging parents and carers to take as wide an interest and involvement as possible.

We hope that our website will give you a flavour of our school and a feeling of the caring and stimulating environment of which we are proud.

Confidence in a school comes from knowing and understanding what is happening within it. We hope that you will extend your knowledge through contact and discussions with myself and members of our school community. It is important that there is mutual understanding and trust in our partnership so that your child can achieve and attain all that he/she is capable of during the time spent at Bleak Hill Primary School.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Ian Wellens

Head Teacher
