A new nursery building will cater for extra demand at an academy.

Biggleswade Academy has put in a planning application to build the new facility, with building work due to start in the Easter holidays if the project is approved.

Headteacher Steve Phillips said: “Central Beds Council provided an initial £50,000 for the former Brigham Pre-School – now the academy pre-school – to extend the current building to take funded two-year-olds.

“But we have been so inundated with parents wanting places in our three-to-five-year-old provision that we decided we would extend it completely.”

He added: “We’re aiming for construction to start over Easter and we are hoping that it will be finished and open by the end of May.”

The new nursery will be located four metres away from the existing facility and will have an associated fencing area.

The building will be L-shaped and will be 15m long and 12m wide.

A large timber terrace area will also be fitted at the front of the nursery.
