A week after expansion plans for Cranmere School were given the go ahead, Surrey County Council has released images of what the new school will look like.

The primary school in the Drive, Esher, will be rebuilt to accommodate 630 pupils as part of the county council’s plans to create more school places to meet growing demand.

The new school will become a three-form entry, with classes of 30, and will also have a nursery with 26 places.

Linda Kemeny, Surrey County Council’s cabinet member for schools and learning, said: “This new 630-place school forms an integral part of Surrey’s biggest-ever investment programme to create 13,000 more places.

“Since 2010, we’ve quadrupled the number of new places available in Surrey schools in response to a rising birth rate and a growing population.

“We’re committed to ensuring the education of children in Surrey continues to improve and the new Cranmere School will mean much-needed extra places for pupils in Esher and the surrounding area.”

The new and expanded school is expected to open during the academic year which begins in September 2015.
