Mildenhall College Academy temporary classroom plans recommended for approval by West Suffolk Council





Retrospective plans to build two temporary classrooms at a Suffolk high school have been recommended for approval by a council.

Mildenhall College Academy installed the two single storey buildings at its site in Sheldrick Way before the start of the 2023/2024 academic year.

In a design and access statement submitted to West Suffolk Council, the school said the double classrooms were needed because it was taking on more students.
