New school approved for Runnymede
We are delighted to announce that a new free school run by the Trust will open in Runnymede in September 2017. It will be based in Chertsey and we are in discussions with the Local Authority regarding the Runnymede Centre site as one of the potential site options. It will be an 11-16 school taking up to 180 students in each year group.
The free school application received its approval from the Department of Education in March 2015 and is now officially in its pre-opening phase. The new school will be called Chertsey High School and will be overseen by the Trust with support from Salesian School, Chertsey. These are two organisations that run high performing schools and have a track record of innovation and excellence in education.
