New Broad Street Schools

Background

Pre-Primary to Grade 8 school

In April 2018, the provincial government announced, as part of the 2018-2019 Capital Plan, a new school Pre-Primary to 9 would be built in Bedford to address enrolment growth in the area. Click here to read the news release.

In June 2019, the community was informed that the new school would be located on Broad Street.

The targeted completion date for the PP-8 school is the 2022-23 school year.

Grade 9 to 12 school

In November 2019, the provincial government announced a new high school would be co-located on the same site on Broad Street.

At this time, it was confirmed the schools would be configured as Pre-Primary to Grade 8 and Grade 9 to 12.

The targeted completion date for the Grade 9-12 school is the 2023-24 school year.

Below is an outline of some of the processes that occur during a school construction process:

School Steering Team (SST)

A School Steering Team (SST) has been created to provide input to government to support the design process. The SST includes the principals of the new schools, a member from each School Advisory Council within the Charles P. Allen Family of Schools, along with staff from both the HRCE and the provincial government.

Final decisions on the design of the school rests with the provincial government, as represented by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, and the Department of Infrastructure and Housing.

The SST held its first meeting on February 4, 2021.

Details on the boundary review, including opportunities for public input will be shared at a future date.

School Names
