The school sits on the Scheduled Monument of Winchcombe Abbey, so we’ve been working with Cotswold Archaeology and English Heritage to agree the most appropriate locations on the school site for the new building.

The application was supported by an archaeological appraisal and a statement of archaeological impact and mitigation.
