A message from Robert Campbell (Chief Executive Officer, Morris Education Trust)
We are delighted to announce that negotiations with the Department for Education (DfE) have finally resulted in the agreement of an opening date for TCS of September 2020. We are excited about the development of the new school and what it will offer for children and families in Cambridgeshire; however we understand that some parents may be frustrated with the length of time the planning and building process is taking: rest assured we share that too! Unfortunately this is mostly out of our control as the project timescale is dictated by funding approval at central government level. The certainty of having a date means that we can now plan in detail to ensure that we have the best possible school for our students ready to open in September 2020.
