The standard of education in the wider area of Whitehill & Bordon is strong.
Bordon Junior and Infants Schools are being expanded by one form entry to cater for the expansion of the town. A new primary school of up to three-form entry will also be delivered in later phases on designated land, and will include a Junior 9 vs 9 football pitch.
Mill Chase Academy (to be rebranded as ‘Oakmoor’), an established local school, is moving from its current location to a new school situated on Budds Lane in November 2019. It will be open as a six-form entry secondary school with room to expand as needed in future years to an eight form entry school. This new education facility will also include:
- A floodlit 3G football pitch
- 3 x junior 11-a-side pitches
- 2 x junior 9-a-side pitches
- 2 x 7-a-side pitches
- 1 x 5-a-side pitches
- 1 x rugby pitch
- 2 x tennis courts
- New sports hall (6 court facility)
We continue to work with local schools and the community to ensure we provide safe routes to schools. Park and Stride, to Bordon Infant and Junior Schools can be accessed using one of the allocated car parks.
