HP, Investing in our schools

Surrey set to sign off investment in another 720 school places

Plans to create 720 new school places as part of the biggest investment programme in Surrey’s history are set to be signed off by the county council.

The council’s Cabinet will consider proposals to boost capacity at six schools in the Guildford, Woking, Reigate and Haslemere areas on Tuesday, 17 December.

Surrey needs to find 16,000 extra school places by 2018 to meet a rise in demand from a surging birth rate. Of those, the council is aiming to create up to 3,000 by next September.

Cabinet Member for Children and Learning Linda Kemeny said: “We’ve embarked on the biggest school expansion programme Surrey’s ever seen to create the 16,000 places we need to meet a huge rise in demand. These 720 places are part of that investment to ensure every pupil gets the best possible start in life.”

Below is a map with pins marking the schools set for expansion and the number of places planned for each.
