School Annexe

Parents and residents are getting the first glimpse of what a new grammar school annexe in Sevenoaks could look like.

This animation forms part of proposals to build both an annexe and a free school on the old Wildernesse school site following demand for more school places in the area.

Although the law forbids the opening of any new grammars, existing schools are allowed to expand and the Education Secretary is due to make a ruling on the plans shortly. Both Invicta at Maidstone and Weald of Kent in Tombridge have applied to run the annexe.
