Elmbridge Free School, Heathside Walton-on-Thames
In March 2016 the ElmWey Learning Trust submitted a bid to the DfE to open a new state secondary school in the Walton-on-Thames/Molesey area of Elmbridge.

On 12th July it was announced that our bid was successful and we have been given the go ahead to proceed with this exiting project. This is an excellent development for ElmWey. Gaining approval is a clear reflection of both Heathside’s reputation and the DfE’s belief that ElmWey has the capacity and capability to deliver a new school for the Borough.

The new school will be called Heathside Walton-on-Thames. The Trust’s aim is to create an outstanding, non-selective, mixed, 11-16 secondary school meeting a clear demand for secondary places in the Borough of Elmbridge, Surrey. It will provide educational outcomes that meet the aspirations of both parents and students and enable students to progress to further and higher education and expand their career opportunities.

For more information, and to express your interest in the new Free School, please visit the Elmbridge Free School website.
