There is no proven need for a secondary school

There is no PROVEN need for a secondary school. The birth rate has fallen in the past 2 years. Secondary schools to the west of the Borough are under subscribed by 736. Another 480 places will available at the new Technical College (2018) and there are approved expansions at Guildford County and St. Peters. The New Hoe Valley school will have 120 places available per year, 25 places this year not taken (no catchment area).

Developments in teaching and learning (independent learning) mean that Secondary Schools could become obsolete in the near future.

The Land Availability Assessment (LAA) projections show there will be no identified ‘need’ for a school for the first 5 years of construction of 450 homes.

An application for housing and a 5FE secondary school has been submitted for the development at Rokers, Worplesdon.
