A few months ago Reading East MP Rob Wilson announced plans for another secondary school in the east of Reading. At the time not much detail was available. I asked to meet him on the subject, but didn't hear anything back.
More positively, a public meeting has recently been organised on the subject. See below for a post taken from the PEER Facebook group.
It is a shame that the local community haven't been involved with shaping this proposal at an earlier stage, but hopefully this opportunity will be the start of a more positive relationship.
"Secondary School Places
Do you have a child in Year 5 or below? Are you concerned about what the secondary school options in East Reading are for your child?
If so come and join other parents and members of East Reading community at a meeting to hear about and discuss an opportunity to create a new school in East Reading in 2014 that meets your needs. All members of the community welcome.
The meeting will be hosted by Rob Wilson MP On Tuesday 11th December at Reading College on the King’s Road, RG1 4HJ, starting at 7pm and ending at 8:30pm.
