A special school in Atherton could be set to move location as the building is believed to be ‘no longer fit for purpose’. Wigan Council’s cabinet are set to agree to build a new £4 million school which would remain as Rowan Tree Primary Special School - but move two miles down the road to Leigh.

The idea is to expand the current premises on Green Hall Close by building a new school on the vacant site of the former Our Lady of the Rosary RC School off Heath Lane in Leigh.

According to the cabinet report, the school’s main building is a timber framed building that has significantly exceeded its design life.

Monitoring is ongoing and some temporary repairs have been carried out to ensure the existing building remains safe to occupy. “The risks for not agreeing the work are that our children continue to be educated in buildings that are no longer fit for purpose and may eventually present a health and safety risk,” the report said. “If we do not enlarge the school we risk sending more children out of the borough where costs will escalate, putting an already overspent budget (High Needs Block) under further pressure.” The proposal is to relocate the school to a bigger, more central site that is easier for Wigan children to access.
