Plans to expand Preston Muslim Girls’ High School by creating a new building as part of the Deepdale Mill Street campus have been submitted to Preston City Council.
The proposed plan will see a new teaching block created following the demolition of an existing storage unit.
These new facilities will house six general education spaces with ancillary rooms such as restrooms, staff rooms, a reprography room and general stores.
The objective is to provide the existing school with much-needed additional space to avoid overcrowding of students.

The proposed program will be located adjacent to the existing school. The application indicates that this is beneficial because students will be able to move between the two buildings within a short walking distance within the school’s secure site.
The two-storey building will be accessed from the existing gate on Deepdale Mill Street at the southwest corner of the site boundary and will be the main pedestrian and vehicular entrance to the school.

The access statement reveals, “The proposed design will therefore help the school to act as a single unit and therefore consolidate its presence, with the facilities of the high school all on the same site.
“It should be noted that the Sixth Form teaching spaces will instead be retained in the neighboring block of Leyland Paints, on a different site accessible from the same side of the road as the existing school.”
