Please support The Gatwick School to remain on its current site permanently and to build a sports hall!

The Gatwick School in Crawley has been open since 2014. Uniquely for Crawley and Horley it is an all-through state funded school for pupils aged 4-16. It now has nearly 500 pupils and nearly 50 staff members. It was rated "Good" in its first Ofsted inspection. It is popular with parents and pupils and has a dedicated, hardworking staff.

Over the last 3 years the buildings, which were previously disused offices, have been transformed into a school with modern classrooms and specialist teaching areas including science labs and a dance studio. The school's current temporary planning permission expires in August. The Gatwick School is now asking Crawley Borough Council for planning permission to

  • permanently change the use of the buildings to a school
  • build a sports hall and Multi Use Games Area for school and community use
  • add a new secondary library and canteen
  • add a new facade to the buildings.
