Following a rigorous application and assessment process, On Friday 5 February the Department for Education approved the proposal for a new Primary school.

Shireland Technology Primary, catering for just under 500 students and focussing on using Flipped Learning and Technology to raise standards.

"This is an amazing opportunity for us to provide a very different form of Primary school for our community. Shireland Technology Primary will use the latest technology to provide an on-line thematic curriculum delivered via a Flipped Learning based methodology. We will deliver a rich curriculum experience for our pupils which will establish the perfect platform for them to join us at Shireland."
