College plans eco-education
Young people from Bicester could lead the way in sustainable living if plans for an eco- school get approval.

The Department for Education is expected to decide on plans for a multi-million pound university technical college, UTC, next month.

If approved, a school for up to 550 14- to 19-year-olds, specialising in sustainable technologies, could be built at Kingsmere housing estate, where a site already has outline planning permission for a secondary school.

Students would be trained in sustainable engineering, fuels, building and materials, and bio-engineering and diversity.

The project is a joint initiative between Oxford and Cherwell Valley College, eco town partner P3Eco, Oxfordshire County Council and Bicesters two existing secondary schools.

It comes months after plans for the first stage of the 5,000 home eco-settlement at North West Bicester were approved.
