PLANS have been submitted for a new assault course to be created on a school playing field.

Redbridge Community School submitted the planning application to Southampton City Council on August 10.

The school facilities, on Cuckmere Lane are used by the larger community but in a letter from Sport England, the organisation said: "Sport England is satisfied that this represents a suitable compromise to a community use agreement and provides adequate security of community access/use of the school’s sports facilities."

The application is currently awaiting a decision.

In the school's last Ofsted report in 2018, it was noted that their were 1043 pupils studying there at the time.
