9.  The transfer of a school to a new site except–

(a)where the transfer is to a site which formerly consisted of playing fields used by the school;

(i)it is not reasonably practicable to make to the existing premises of the school any alterations necessary to secure that they confirm to the standards prescribed under section 542 of the Education Act 1996, or

(ii)the teaching accommodation at the school is too small to enable teaching to be undertaken satisfactorily in the light of the number of pupils at the school and it is not reasonably practicable to enlarge the teaching accommodation; or

(c)where the transfer has been authorised by an order made before 1st September 1999 under section 47 of the Education Act 1996; and, in the case of a transfer such as is described in sub-paragraph (a) or (b), where the main entrance of the school on its new site will be within 3.218688 kilometres (two miles) of the main entrance of the school on its old site.
