and Enterprise Campus
Richmond upon Thames College, Haymarket Media Group, Harlequins, Clarendon School, Waldegrave School, Richmond Council and Achieving for Children are working together to create an Education and Enterprise Campus on the College site on Egerton Road in Twickenham. The ambition is to redevelop the site to include new college buildings, a new secondary school, purpose-built accommodation for Clarendon School (with the Newhouse Centre), and Haymarket’s new “tech hub” and digital media incubator – all on a single Campus.
The Campus, in addition to benefiting the education of local young people, will deliver real benefits to the wider community.
The Outline Planning Application for the Campus has now been submitted (by Richmond upon Thames College) to the Local Planning Authority. Following validation by the Local Planning Authority a statutory consultation will be carried out. This will include those who live near the site, stakeholders and other interested parties. When the application has been validated you will be able to view it here.
Current opportunity to have your say: Over the next few months, work will focus on the physical look and feel of the secondary school building and facilities. The Free School Trust behind the secondary school will look to engage with residents and the community throughout this process. The first stage of this engagement, will aid the Trust in choosing a name for the school. The name of the school will be very important, giving the school an identity – both in relation to where it is located, but also in terms of its vision and objectives. If you have an idea for the name of the school let us know here.
