New East Reading Secondary School Plans Take Shape

school signAs promised earlier in the year, Reading East MP Rob Wilson has been working on plans for a new Secondary School for East Reading. As you would expect, a lot of background work has to be undertaken before proposals can be revealed, and this has led to some rather petty sniping from the Reading Labour Party.

Rob has now sent out a notice to local residents who could benefit from the school to invite them to a meeting next week:

Tuesday 11 December at 7pm, Rob Wilson MP Invites Local Parents to a Meeting on Plans for New Secondary School in East Reading 
Do you have a child in Year 5 or below? Are you concerned about the secondary school options in East Reading for your child?

If so come and join other parents and other east Reading residents at a meeting to discuss an opportunity to create a new school in East Reading that meets needs. All members of the community are welcome, but it will be specifically for parents who will be interested in sending their children to the new school.

The meeting will be hosted by Rob Wilson MP and will be a discussion of plans and progress for a new local  school. It will take place at Reading College on the King’s Road, RG1 4HJ, starting at 7pm and ending at 8:30pm.

Rob is also working with people elsewhere in Reading to support plans for new schools, more details of which will be revealed in due course.

  1. If it is needed then build it, but wasn’t there once a Secondary School called Alfred Sutton along the Wokingham Road/? Could that be re-opened under its old function?
