Temporary Primary catchment change from September 2024 - Consultation
4 November 2022
Currently, the Hampton Development to the west of the A15 is one shared catchment area for the primary schools located there (i.e. Hampton Hargate Primary School, Hampton College Primary Phase and Hampton Vale Primary Academy). This area is also Catchment B on the Hampton Lakes Primary School admissions policy. Peterborough City Council has approached the schools and trusts operating within this catchment to request they temporarily add Great Haddon to their catchment. As the Hampton Academies Trust is the admissions authority for its schools, we are consulting in relation to Hampton College Primary Phase and Hampton Lakes Primary School (catchment B).
Great Haddon will ultimately be a development of 5000 homes served by three primary schools and one secondary school. The development is now underway with the first housing completions due this winter. The first primary school is due to open to time with the completion of 500 homes. This primary school will become the local school for Great Haddon with its catchment area covering the development.
The Great Haddon development is not currently covered by a primary school catchment area. In order to ensure the admissions process is fair and open for families moving on to the development before the first Great Haddon primary opens, it is proposed to extend the current Hampton shared catchment area/ Hampton Lakes catchment B area, to include the Great Haddon development. This will result in families moving on to the development being allocated places on the basis that they are in the shared catchment for Hampton College, Hampton Hargate, and Hampton Vale and in catchment B for Hampton Lakes.
This change is proposed to be temporary and will only stay in place until the first primary school on Great Haddon opens. At this point the current Hampton shared catchment area/ Hampton Lakes catchment B area will revert back to its current boundaries.
How do I take part in the consultation?
