New Home for The Howard

We are delighted that our client The Howard of Effingham School, part of The Howard Partnership Trust, had the Reserved Matters application approved recently by Guildford Borough Council.

The 16,000m2 replacement school will provide accommodation for 2,000 students along with a Surrey-based Cullum Centre to support students with autism.

MEA is providing The Howard Partnership Trust with Monitoring Surveyor duties for the complex relationship with Berkeley Homes. The expertise of MEA’s specialist consultancy, Building Schools for Nothing, is greatly assisting with the service provided.

The new school aims to:

~ Transform the learning environment for students and staff

~ Help overcome localised traffic congestion at peak school times through junction and highways improvements

~ Bring investment in local infrastructure including £2.645m contribution to the redevelopment of the KGV community building

~ Significantly improve facilities across the curriculum, flexible and outdoor learning spaces, increased size of school grounds, safer access for students and dedicated sixth form building

~ Benefit the community through use of new facilities, such as full-sized sports pitches, outside of school hours

~ Reduce maintenance costs and energy consumption therefore increasing funding available for students’ education and improving environmental impact of the school

~ Meet increased demand for school places from within the current catchment area
