Save Ockley School

Residents of Ockley, a village situated south of Dorking, Surrey, are campaigning to save the recently closed infant school, previously known as the Scott-Broadwood Church of England Infant school. The community has had a school since 1841 and many members of the village either attended the school themselves, or their children did.

The closure of the school in March 2017 came as a surprise to the parents of the pupils, who had not been made fully aware of the extent to which the school was suffering financially. Parents had no choice but to find schools in the surrounding areas to place their children, removing them from their peers into unfamiliar surroundings.

Now the community of Ockley has come together with the plan to create a Free School, a school which is funded by the government but is not run by the local council. The school is run by a team of teachers, parents or/and a business or organisation, and is a form of academy.

To raise money for the application process, the community is organising The Great Big Ockley Get Together on Saturday 15 July from 12pm-4pm. This fete on Ockley village green will include a fun Dog Show, a Maypole dance, a variety of stalls, a BBQ, games, a bouncy castle and much more.
