The eventual population at Welborne will call for a total of three primary schools and one secondary school. Each will be located within different neighbourhood and character areas; they will be easy to walk to and will be on public transport links. The first primary school is expected to be delivered in the very early phases of development to the north of the site, at the village centre, whilst the secondary school will be located nearer the district centre.

The schools will be an integral part of the community and neighbourhoods, providing some public facilities and located to ensure strong links to green corridors and adjacent open spaces.
