New Schools Information

New Schools:

Wildern has been given approval from the Department for Education to open two new free schools in the local community to meet basic need - a 7-form entry secondary school, potentially located at Woodhouse Lane in Hedge End, and a 2-form primary school proposed at Boorley Park.

Building on Wildern’s excellent reputation, commitment to the local community and track record of providing high quality education, we are excited about the opportunity to contribute further to the educational provision in the area.

We are working very closely with the Local Authority in the development and design of the proposed new schools and, in the coming months, will be able to share more detail about the design, location and educational vision for each school.

Moving forward we will become a Multi Academy Trust, which in simple terms is very similar to our current status and legal entity but will include two additional schools. Our commitment to our current learners and community remains the same; providing high quality teaching and learning for all.

What next:

  • Confirmation of new school locations
  • Consultation and sharing of key information
  • Displaying design plans for each school
  • Sharing the educational vision for each school
  • Finalising the official name for each school
  • Establishing dedicated websites for each school

There will be much to do in the coming months and we will use this link page on the Wildern website to update students, parents and the community of key developments and dates of interest as we progress forward.
