Tyldesley police station will become a school
9:10am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
A NEW school could soon be opening in Tyldesley.
The town’s former Shuttle Street police station, which has been empty since 2006, is set to become an independent school for young people with special educational needs.
The building was purchased by Crystal Property in 2011 and has been leased to the Advanced Childcare Group.
Hayley Blackwell, marketing manager for the Advanced Childcare Group, said: “The size and layout of the school allows us to tailor the educational experience of young people to their individual needs and interests, including vocational education.
“The opening date of Tyldesley School is yet to be confirmed. It will have a capacity for 34 students, aged between 11 and 18 years.”
Crystal Property land director Andy Park said: “We felt that its location in a busy residential area made it ideal for a childcare facility, so it’s great news that Advanced Childcare has chosen the building for its new school.
“This letting will bring back into use a building that has long been vacant and provide an important community resource."
