As the Deputy will be aware, a major project to provide an extension to the school in question is included in my Department's building programme to be delivered as part of the National Development Plan (NDP). The accommodation brief is currently being finalised and it is intended that the project, when completed, will provide capacity for 1,000 students.

In the meantime, my Department is currently considering an application from the Patron for additional interim accommodation and a decision on the application will issue shortly.
