There aren’t enough secondary schools in our area. Demand for places outstrips supply, with the result that many local children are forced to travel long distances to secondary schools across south east London and north of the river. Demographic change means that spaces will become even more limited in the future and the problem will continue to worsen.
Because of this, local parents have started a non-political, grass roots campaign for a new secondary school in North Southwark.
As there are already several same-sex and religious schools in the area, parents are proposing that this new school increase local options by being mixed gender and non-denominational.
We have identified a site for the new school as the old Southwark Fire Station, on Southwark Bridge Road. This site would be reachable from your primary school and therefore a possible option for your child.
We need your help to show demand amongst parent’s in particular primary year 4 & 3.
