A new secondary school for Houghton Regis

A new secondary school has been described as “a real boost for Houghton Regis” by a Central Beds councillor, as it was unanimously approved.

The decision to close Houghton Regis Academy in August 2022 triggered the need for a replacement school for the town.

Kingsland Secondary School will offer places for 900 pupils, as well as a 220-pupil sixth form, according to a report to Central Bedfordshire Council’s (CBC) development management committee.

CBC’s assets team has submitted a planning application for a three-storey school building and sports hall, with six entrances.

The local authority’s full proposals include sports pitches, with an all-weather surface, access, parking and landscaping.

The site is part of the Kingsland Campus, which includes the current academy, Houghton Regis Leisure Centre, the Academy of Central Bedfordshire and Priory Parkside Pre-school.
