More details from petition creator

St Matthews is a highly rated and oversubscribed, excellent state school serving Cobham and Downside families. 86% of our children come from Cobham, Downside and Stoke D'Abernon.

Due to a well publicised chronic shortage of school places in this area, and in particular junior places in the Cobham area, our children will find it difficult to secure their continued education. At St Matthews our children increasingly will have no where to go when they leave us.

St Matthews has officially been sanctioned as "in an area of basic need" by Surrey Local Education Authority and funding has been allocated to allow us to expand, so that pupils can stay with us until they are 11 years of age. In addition we have been gifted the land by the Parochial Parish Council. We have the funding and the land and we cannot lose this much needed opportunity to provide school places in Cobham.
