On 1 July 2018 Wildern School became a Multi Academy Trust. We have been given approval from the Department for Education to open two new free schools in the local community to meet basic need - a 2-form primary school proposed at Boorley Park to be known as Boorley Park Primary School, and a 7-form entry secondary school potentially located at Woodhouse Lane in Hedge End to be known as Deer Park School (both are subject to planning permission). Having been designated as one of the first 100 Teaching Schools in July 2011 we have a proven history of outreach with other schools, both at a Primary and Secondary level.
