We Asked

Do you agree with the proposal to expand Brooklands School from September 2020?

You Said

There were 15 responses following the publication of the Statutory Notices: 13 residents agreed with the proposal to expand the school and 2 respondants disagreed.

The majority of respondents acknowledged the benefit of expanding Brooklands School on the site at Alexander Road.

The main concern raised was about parking during drop off and collection periods and parking arrangements for the additional staff.

We Did

On 14 April  2020 Julie Iles, Cabinet Member for All-Age Learning, approved the recommendation to expand Brooklands School on the site at Alexander Road from September 2020. Any relevant permanent planning application required for the expansion will be pursued and determined in accordance with relevant planning legislation.





Surrey County Council, in collaboration with Brooklands School in Reigate, is looking at how best to provide additional specialist school places in the local area.

Our proposal is to expand Brooklands School to create additional provision for children with a primary need of Autism Spectrum Disorder using an existing school site on Alexander Road in Reigate.  It is proposed that the expansion will provide an additional 70 places.  The school would expand its provision incrementally over a 3 to 4 year period, to eventually reach full capacity.

Surrey County Council and Brooklands School sought views on this proposal.  The consultation opened on Monday 13 January 2020 and closed on Friday 14 February 2020.

A public meeting was held at Brooklands School on Wednesday 5 February 2020 from 5.30pm - 6.30pm.
