Devon school could get 105 new pupils

A Devon primary school could see its pupil numbers rise by more than 100.

Devon County Council is consulting on raising the number of places at Clyst Heath Primary School, in Exeter, from 210 to 315.

Schools across the city are feeling the strain amid a rise in births over the past 10 years and new housing.

There will be an information session at the school on 18 October with representatives from Devon County Council and the school's governors.

Christine Channon, Devon's cabinet member for schools, said: "Clyst Heath is a very popular and successful primary school and, as with Exeter, the demand for reception places is forecast to exceed the number available.

"We intend to support the enlargement of Clyst Heath by providing extra classrooms as needed."
