New classrooms for Surbiton High pupils as school snaps up building

This Is Local London: Expansion: Zockoll House in Maple Road Expansion: Zockoll House in Maple Road

Pupils at Surbiton High School will move into new classrooms.

The school has bought the four-storey Zockoll House building in Maple Road and plans to convert part of it for teaching use.

Administrative staff will also move into the converted town house, which backs on to the school’s existing Surbiton Crescent site.

Principal Ann Haydon said: “As we develop the school further we need more room for our pupils.

“It is not in response to anything from lack of places in Kingston.

“There will need to be some internal refurbishment.

“It is huge. The configuration is very much offices. We think they can easily be converted.

“Obviously if other options come up we would be looking at them.”

That is good as long as they maintain the outward appearance of the building itself. Maple Road has been abused by poor planning decisions over the years and we need to try to preserve what is left of the original area.
