Chilmington Green Free School

United Learning has been given approval by the government to open a new Free School in Chilmington Green, Ashford. The brief is to open a 6 forms of entry mixed non-selective secondary school in September 2022. This will be housed in a new building on the A28 edge of the new Chilmington Green development. The new free school will join Wye School as the second United Learning secondary school in the Ashford area, and like Wye School will also work with Ashford School, our local United Learning independent school. The priority academic objectives are to:

  • provide outstanding education for the Chilmington Green population;
  • improve the quality of education in the Ashford area;
  • to give access to a United Learning education for families currently living outside the Wye School catchment area in South and Central Ashford.

The new school is planned to open with Year 7 only and then grow progressively each year until completion as an 11-16 school in 2026. The government also indicated there is potential for the school to add a 6th Form at that point depending on the need for 6th form places in the Ashford area.

These are early days in the project for a new Free School and links to public information will be posted here when they become available.


The school is part of United Learning. United Learning comprises: UCST (Registered in England No: 2780748. Charity No. 1016538) and ULT (Registered in England No. 4439859. An Exempt Charity). Companies limited by guarantee. VAT number 834 8515 12.
