Proposal to expand Philip Southcote School

Closes 10 May 2021

Opened 22 Mar 2021

Overview

This proposal supersedes the proposals outlined in the previous consultation paper, issued on 22 February 2021. 

Surrey County Council (SCC) is proposing that Philip Southcote School is expanded to permanently accommodate a total of 150 pupils on the main site by providing an additional 50 places in National Curriculum Years 7 to 11. The main point of intake will be at Year 7. 

Part of this proposal is to also relocate the current sixth form provision and permanently increase capacity. The sixth form would be located as a split-site at the former Meads building, adjacent to Chertsey High School.

Initial proposals in the previous consultation paper considered establishing a satellite Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) centre at Jubilee High School. After discussions between SCC, Philip Southcote School and Bourne Education Trust, it is now proposed that this centre is located at Chertsey High School instead.

In addition to the above, it is now also proposed that another satellite SEND centre is established at Kings International College, Camberley, in partnership with the Governing Body of the school.  

Our aim is that the introduction of more specialist centres and/or special school satellite sites in secondary schools would also be an opportunity for schools to strengthen local partnerships and their inclusion offer to all children and young people; therefore being of benefit to both the local authority and the school populations.

We would like to seek your views on this proposal.  The consultation will open on Monday 22nd March 2021.

An online public meeting is scheduled to take place on Thursday 22 April at 7pm

Please register your interest for the online event by 5pm on Wednesday 21 April. You can request an invitation and link to the meeting by sending an email to: schoolorg@surreycc.gov.uk
