Plans for the two-form school have been submitted for the site off Newmarket Road, part of the first phase of planning applications which will eventually see a community of up to 12,000 homes built on the land which is owned by Marshall.

The school, which is proposed to be built off the development’s market square, would be two stories and have space for up to 420 pupils. An additional nursery would be able to cater for 52 children.

The proposals also include the creation of sports fields, cycle parking, access roads and school hall.

According to the planning application, the Wing Primary School will be managed by Anglian Learning which will give the curriculum a focus on STEM subjects.

The application adds: “The aim is to design a nationally recognised centre of excellence, both in the quality and inspiration of the school building and environment, and of the STEM curriculum.”

The trust goes on to say that the focus of the curriculum on STEM subjects ‘reflects the business environment of Cambridge’.

The planning application has been submitted by Cambridgeshire County Council.
