Community Forum on Education Provision



West Horsley Parish Council has not been made aware of any plans to deal with the provision of education to the now substantially increased population in the Horsleys and surrounding villages. We believe it is our responsibility to not only obtain this information, but also to enable our residents to understand what, if any, plans are in place for their children and grandchildren.

We are therefore hosting an evening Community Forum and have invited spokespeople from various organisations to explain how they plan to accommodate the growing number of children needing places at primary and secondary school.

Confirmed spokespeople are:

  • Jane Edwards, Assistant Director for Education, Surrey County Council
  • Mike Singleton, Service Manager for Place Planning, Surrey County Council
  • Sir Andrew Carter, CEO, South Farnham Educational Trust
  • Mrs O'Neill, Executive Head Teacher, The Raleigh School
  • Phillip Wheatley, Executive Principal, The Howard Partnership Trust 

This Forum is not designed to be a protest meeting but rather a genuine attempt to gain and understanding of what plans are in place to fulfil the obligation to provide an education to our children.
