St. Bede's School Expansion

Closed 9 Jul 2018

Opened 11 Jun 2018


Surrey County Council is proposing that St. Bede's School is enlarged from nine forms of entry (9FE) at Year 7 to eleven forms of entry (11FE) at Year 7, from September 2019. As a result, the school will be enlarged from a 1,350-place Secondary School, 270 places per year from Year 7 to Year 11, to a 1,650-place Secondary School, 330 places per year from Year 7 to Year 11. The school would grow incrementally, year-on-year, as the higher intake of 330 pupils works its way progressively through the age range. As such, the school will effectively reach its new capacity of 1,650 places in September 2024.

The school in its new form would be designed to serve children across the Reigate & Redhill area.

A building project will be undertaken on the existing site to provide the necessary additional capacity, for which the relevant planning permission has been approved.
