Let’s make our vision a reality We are delighted to announce that our bid for the first Church of England co-educational secondary-phase school in Sutton will be submitted to the Department for Education in spring 2016.
Should our application be approved, Sutton Church of England Secondary School plans to open in September 2020 with six Year 7 classes (180 places) and admit the same number of Year 7 pupils each year thereafter, reaching full capacity of 1,260 pupils when the first students reach Year 13. The school will operate an admissions policy in accordance with the School Admissions Code and will welcome all children of all faiths and none.
Co-educational, non-selective and free to attend, Sutton Church of England Secondary School is being proposed by the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education and will offer a broad and balanced curriculum taught by qualified teachers. The school’s specialism in Health and Science will be enhanced by strong links with the Sutton for Life programme and the local cancer hub, and students will also benefit from an extended school day, excellent pastoral care and a wide range of enrichment opportunities.
We need to demonstrate support from the local community to make this happen.
Please complete our online form to show your support, especially if you currently have children due to start Year 7 from 2020 – it will take less than a minute!
Do you have friends with children starting secondary school from 2020 and beyond? Please let them know about our proposed new school!
