Expansion Consultation

Purpose of the consultation

There is significant demand from parents within the city of Plymouth and in Devon and Cornwall for more selective school places locally and more good school places particularly as there are only 180 grammar places for boys compared to 240 for girls in Plymouth. Devonport High School for Boys has been working hard to increase access for disadvantaged pupils and has been working in partnership with local primary and secondary schools to improve education in the city. 


Devonport High School for Boys Academy Trust wants to hear the views of the local community on: 


  • The proposed enlargement of Devonport High School for Boys by 1 Form Entry (FE) (30 places) starting in September 2021 or September 2022.
