I wish people would realise that Sevenoaks parents and children are special and they should have whatever they demand, and surely a good GS in the town is a necessity for little Johnny
(I speak as a parent living in Sevenoaks with children travelling to TW to attend GS)
Mystery, I think KCC have already changed they paying for travel criteria. There was definitely something proposed along the lines of they would only pay for travel to nearest school, as long as it is more than 3 miles away. As opposed to the nearest appropriate school, and if a child passsed the 11+ this would constitute a GS.
I think what annoys me about the argument of having a GS in Sevenoaks, is that people want it both ways. If you believe in selective education then you shouldn't expect to have a GS on your doorstep.
It could also be argued that by moving Wildenesse site to the Bradbourne site it has made very inconvenient for a lot of the boys that used to travel to Wildernesse and now have to travel the extra couple of mile to the Bradbourne site, so should there not be a new school on the site for these unfortunate children?
Maybe the GSs should look at opening an All Ability school on the old Wildernesse site. That I would wholeheartedly support.
