Pix Brook Academy, the new ext­ended secondary school announced in May 2017, was finally allocated a patch of land in December. Assuming planning permission is granted, it will be built adjacent to Larksfield Surgery – more or less opposite Etonbury. The plan is that it will open its doors in September 2019, in time for pupils currently in Year 3 to transfer there for middle school.
