(UK) Surrey: New special school approved; 'desperate need'

Nov 22, 2023, BBC News: New SEND school approved for Walton-on-Thames

SE England

A new Special Educational Needs School for up to 200 children has been approved by Surrey County Council.

Hopescourt School in Waterside Drive, Walton-on-Thames, was granted planning permission on Tuesday.

The new school will include sport courts and is hoping to welcome its first cohort of 80 pupils in September 2024.

Residents' Association councillor Ernest Mallet said: “We need this school and there is nowhere else for it to go.

Can you expose the popular "tricked into harm" lie and the sinister true agenda(s)/desires that were behind what Reagan and Trump both did? We are seeing A.I. powered "smart homes" for autistic adults to "live independently" as an alternative to living…
