Statutory Process for the Enlargement of Penistone Grammar School
A letter from Barnsley MBC has recently been emailed to parents/carers regarding the Statutory Process to enlarge Penistone Grammar School.
The proposal was to enlarge Penistone Grammar School from the current capacity of 1400 pupils to 1650 pupils with effect from September 2018 (implemented on a phased basis). This will mean an extra 50 places for the year 7 intake each year from 2018 onwards. Please click on the link below to download the Barnsley MBC letter.
