Secondary school consultation - public meeting dates set

The council has formally announced the information on the secondary schools review. In Odd Down this has two big issues, whether Culverhay goes co-ed and the sixth form for St Gregory's.

We have long supported Culverhay going co-ed as the best option for the school.

Else where it could mean St. Mark's and Oldfield Girls School closing and re-opening as one school.

The dates for the public meetings, which form part of Bath & North East Somerset Council's Secondary school consultation, have now been set.

The meetings form part of the wider consultation where parents, teachers and pupils have the chance to have their say on proposals outlined in Bath and North East Somerset Council's Secondary Review.
