Reading Borough Council confirms a new Maiden Erlegh School for East Reading on the Crescent Road site

After a protracted period of negotiations between Reading Borough Council (RBC) and the Education Funding Authority (EFA)I can confirm that Crescent Road in East Reading will be the site for the new Maiden Erlegh school.

The council bought the Crescent Road site in 2013 with the express intention of securing the site for future educational use. This was done in response to the increasing demand on secondary school places, particularly developing in 2017. At tonight's Policy Cttee we agreed to sell the land at Crescent Road to the EFA in order for the Maiden Erlegh academy to open a secondary school in 2017.
