21 Feb 2013

Young EpilepsyPlans for a new school campus for children with epilepsy have been approved.

National charity Young Epilepsy plans to redevelop its St Piers School site in Surrey, UK. It currently provides education to 80 pupils with epilepsy, or other neurological conditions. The site caters for both residential and day pupils.

Tandridge planning committee approved plans to knock down 12 of the existing buildings and replace them with a new school. The new development will be 10,631 square feet. It will be made up of three buildings and house a total of 14 classrooms. Parking facilities will also be improved.

In addition to improving the existing site, the charity plans to build a pedal kart track, outdoor classroom and play zones.

The current school buildings have been criticised as students must go outside to access different facilities. The school is scheduled to close while the work is completed and students will be housed in temporary buildings.
