A planning application has been submitted to ERYC to create a small school in a building which formerly accommodated the Montessori Nursery on the A1079 opposite the Yorkway motel on the Innov8 Business Park.

The application states that the school will provide an education facility for a small number of pupils and development will not create any adverse noise impacts over and above that which exists from the adjoining road noise.

The existing floor plans show the creation of 6 small classrooms, a hall, kitchen, office and therapy and intervention room.

The application has been submitted by ‘Melrose Education’ which was founded in 2021 and currently has a portfolio of six SEN (Special Educational Needs) schools, providing over 330 places to children with SEN conditions. The firm’s portfolio includes Orchard Education, which is located across three sites in Cleethorpes and Grimsby. Its other schools include The Learning Centre and Break Through School in Kent, The Rowan School in Dudley, Highgate Hill House School in Devon and the Stable School in Christchurch.
Melrose is targeting acquisitions of Special Education Needs (SEN) schools after securing growth capital from OakNorth Bank. The company says that, with the backing of the bespoke funding package, it expects to complete several acquisitions before the end of 2023.
