Local schools have received more than £9 million in extra funds for new school places.
Chester MP Stephen Mosley welcomed the funding, describing it as “another sign of the Government’s commitment to world-class education in Britain”.
The new funds for West Cheshire, which takes the local total for new school places to £11,153,434, will provide 2,060 new school places as part of a £5 billion commitment to new school places.
The latest figures come after it has been announced that there could be a new 420 place primary school planned for Chester to replace the current Huntington Primary School. This will double the size of the school to accommodate a growing local community, taking it from single to two-form entry.
Dee Point Primary School in Blacon, which is due to be rebuilt, is also becoming two-form entry to create more primary school places.
Since 2010, Chester has also seen two new free schools open - St Martin’s Academy in Hoole and the University Cathedral Free School in the city centre.
Mr Mosley said: “We will have 2,060 new school places in West Cheshire in the next two years. And they will be in better school buildings than ever, with over £30 million being committed to rebuilding Blacon High, Dee Point Primary, Highfield Primary and JH Godwin Primary School.”
