housing plans TV school

Plans to build 177 homes on the former site of Harrop Fold School have been resubmitted.

The school, located in Little Hulton, featured on Channel 4’s Educating Greater Manchester television series.

Pozzoni Architecture Limited has resubmitted plans to add five-bedroom houses with ensuite bathrooms at first floor level, as well as adding patio doors to some properties.

The planning application has been resubmitted for 45 apartments and 132 houses, including of 3-, 4- and 5-bedroom houses. The first submission for houses to be built upon the site was in 2021 when the school closed.

Associated parking, landscaping and open spaces are also included in the application.

The houses are to be built on land at the former Harrop Fold School, which closed in 2021 after featuring on the popular tv show, Educating Greater Manchester.

The hit TV show was first broadcast on Channel 4 in 2017; a new series followed in 2020.

The school closed after popular headteacher Drew Povey was suspended, leading to protests outside the school.

The Lowry Academy, which serves pupils from Little Hulton and Walkden, replaced it and remains open.
