A FORMER Harlow secondary school site may be brought back into use to meet the growing demand for places.
Essex County Council is planning to open a new secondary school on the 25-acre site in Tendring Road, which used to be home to Passmores School until it relocated to a new state-of-the-art in Tracyes Road in September 2011.
Essex County Council said it intends to open the school, which will take 240 children a year, in September 2018.
County councillor Ray Gooding, cabinet member for education and lifelong learning, said: “As part of our planning for school places for the next 10 years, we intend to open a new secondary school on the former Passmores site for up to 240 children a year from September 2018.”
“Further details, including the cost, are not yet known and currently being explored,” he added.
