Blessed Thomas Holford Catholic College - Proposal to Expand

Proposal to increase the physical capacity of the school

Notice is given that Trafford Council intends to make a prescribed alteration to Blessed Thomas Holford Catholic College (a voluntary aided school) from 01 September 2021.

The current published admission number for Blessed Thomas Holford Catholic College is 250.  This equates to a maximum number of pupils on roll of 1250 in years 7 to 11.  The 2019 net capacity measure for the school equalled 1108 for Years 7 to 11. This allows for the accommodation of 221 pupils in each of the 5 year groups.  The current number of children on roll is 1326.  The anticipated number of pupils on roll at Blessed Thomas Holford Catholic College School from September 2021 is 1450. 

The proposal requires the erection of a detached three storey building on the current recreation area at the front of the school (a new recreation area will be located at the back of the school) incorporating:

  • a 14 classroom teaching block
  • attached sports hall with associated changing facilities
  • formation of new car and cycle parking spaces
  • provision of new hard surface play area and associated development thereto.

A planning application has been submitted and validated (100763/FUL/20)
