The County Council has a statutory duty to provide sufficient primary and secondary school places for all children who need a place. As part of the secondary school curriculum, Physical Education is a core subject and suitable provision is required to ensure a wide range of sport can be offered to ensure children are given the best start in life.


Tanbridge House School in Horsham accommodates over 1500 pupils aged 11-16 and has a mix of indoor PE provision (sports hall, activity hall) and external provision (grass pitches, multi-use games area and All Weather Pitch (AWP)).


The existing sand dressed AWP has reached the end of its life and requires replacement due to the poor quality of the surface.
