New local Primary School proposed by Surrey Cabinet


At a meeting of Surrey County Council’s Cabinet on the 30th April, the cabinet agreed to allocated funds to build a new primary (2-form) school, 430 places and instructed the Head of Estates Planning and Management, to seek to find and enter into negotiations to acquire a site for a new School in the Redhill area.

Further details on the size and possible location and opening date of the new school are currently unclear. Further information will be given when its available.

Cllr Graeme Crome – Merstham Ward Councillor
As a parent I know how difficult and distressing it is to find the right local school for their children. We have seen a number of cases locally where children have ended up having to travel to schools outside of our area as there have been no spaces available locally.

The availability of school places locally has been stretched to the limit by the growth in new houses, particularly at Water Colour and Park 25.

I am optimistic that a new local school will enable Merstham’s parents to finally have a real choice when trying to find the best school for their children.

    This sounds great but will it include a Nursery & Infants school as these are too short in supply in the area?
    When will “plans’ be put into action, which academic year will a new school be ready?
