  4. ENVISAGE TO CLOSE

    The Envisage project is to close.

Cobham Free School Location

Cobham Free School is currently located in the Old Police Station on the Portsmouth Road and last September opened a Secondary Department.

The school announced on 22 July 2015 that it is finalising an agreement to secure Hurst Park School in  West Molesey for its senior department for the next two years.  Read the full announcement at CFS Press Statement.

The school stated in a Press Release in March 2015 that “the Junior and Senior Departments will move in the next two years to a large six acre site near Anvil Lane in central Cobham”.  The CDRA is not opposed to additional accommodation being found for secondary school pupils in the Cobham area but the proposed location is a matter of considerable concern. We await a planning application for this development.

Cobham Free School Consultation

Cobham Free School are consulting on their proposal to reduce their Published Admission Numbers, PAN, to 24 pupils in Reception and 48 pupils in Year 7. The new admissions policy would take effect in time for the normal admissions round for the September 2016/17 pupil intake and would apply to all applications including those for Reception, Year 7 and in-year applications. To give your views go to CFS Consultation. The closing date is 19th August 2015.
