Plans to expand Preston Muslim Girls High School by creating a new building as part of the campus in Deepdale Mill Street have been submitted to Preston City Council.Advertisement
The proposed plan will see a new teaching block created following demolition of an existing storage unit.
These new facilities will accommodate six general teaching spaces with ancillary accommodation such as toilets, staff rooms, reprographics room and general stores.
The aim is to provide the existing school with much needed additional space to prevent overcrowding amongst pupils.

The proposed scheme will sit adjacent to the existing school. The application says this is beneficial as students will be able to circulate between the two buildings in a short walking distance within the school’s secure compound site.
The two-storey building will be accessed from the existing gate on Deepdale Mill Street at the south-west corner of the site boundary and will be the main pedestrian and vehicular entrance to the school.

The access statement reveals: “The proposed design will hence help the school act as one single unit and will therefore consolidate its presence, with the high school facilities all on the same site.
“It is worth noting that the Sixth Form teaching spaces will instead be kept in the nearby Leyland Paints block, on a different site accessed from the same side of the road as the existing school.”
