The consultation period lasts from Wednesday, 10th December 2021  to Wednesday 21st  January 2022.

Responses must be received by Wednesday 26th  January. In your response, please include your full name, title and contact details. Responses can be sent by email to or post to Admissions Consultation, Southborough High School, Hook Road, Surbiton KT6 5AS.

The proposed changes are highlighted on the attached Draft Admissions Policy. In summary, the main proposed changes are:

Purpose The Standard Number for each year group in Years 7 to 11 is 150. There is no Standard Number for the Sixth Form. 

Practice for admissions to Year 7

 1. Children with Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) which choose Southborough High school will be allocated a place before other applicants are considered. In this way, the number of places to be offered will be reduced by the number of children with EHCP. Children with EHCP that names Southborough High school and who arrive outside the normal admission round will be admitted to the school even if the school is oversubscribed.


Yours faithfully,

Niall Smith
