Runnymede and Weybridge MP Philip Hammond has visited Surrey County Council for a progress report on a new secondary school for 900-plus pupils at the Runnymede Centre in Addlestone. The Foreign Secretary also heard about the council’s £215 million funding gap for the 13,000 places required in the next five years.


Linda Kemeny, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Schools and Learning, said: “It was great to sit down with the Secretary of State to tell him first-hand about transforming our building into a brand new school that will provide the extra places that the nearby secondaries just don’t have space for while also outlining the £215m funding gap we face for the 13,000 places needed during the next five years.”
