Proposal to Amalgamate
Surrey County Council, in partnership with the governing bodies of Weybourne Infant School and William Cobbett Junior School, is proposing to amalgamate the two schools to form a Primary School by extending the age range at William Cobbett Junior School and closing Weybourne Infant School. The resulting extended primary school would incorporate both existing sites.
Both schools serve the Weybourne area of northern Farnham and both offer good education for all of their students. The two schools are on adjacent sites and the vast majority of students who attend Weybourne Infant School naturally transfer to William Cobbett Junior School. In such situations it is Surrey policy to consider amalgamation. It is felt that this proposal offers a sustainable model of provision and secures education on two adjoining sites that meet the future needs of this community.
A consultation booklet, which gives full details of the proposal, is attached below.
We will be holding public consultation meetings on:
· Thursday 5th March 2015 – 7.00pm – Weybourne Infant School
· Tuesday 10th March 2015 – 3.30pm – William Cobbett Junior School
Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting that is most convenient for them and there is no need to pre-register your attendance at the meetings.
