PLANS have been revealed for a new sixth form block at a Marlow school, which will include extra classrooms, study space and common areas for A-Level pupils.

The school has applied to Wycombe District Council for permission to build a new structure and add a storey to an existing school building to create a separate sixth form study centre.

The grammar school, which was also one of the first schools in Bucks to be granted academy status, insists the new centre is required due to the popularity of its thriving sixth form.

With around 380 year 12 and 13 pupils, the school outlines in its proposal the need for separate facilities given the specialist nature of some subjects on offer.

The project includes the creation of a separate reception area, new classrooms and a common room, as well as the creation of a courtyard space to extend the capacity of the in-school cafe.

Great Marlow School has also announced it intends offer a designated space for sixth form pupils, with early plans looking at adding a storey to an existing school building.

Marlow Town Council assessed the Borlase proposal at a meeting this week, offering no objections to the new block.

Wycombe District Council is due to rule on the application by March, and as yet there is no completion date for the building work.
