We the undersigned ask that the County Council’s Children and Young People’s Committee make a clear commitment, with a date, to fund the expansion of Chesterton Community College, and the building investment which supports that expansion.
Chesterton Community College is a popular local school, and one which is already over-subscribed.
The population statistics demonstrate the need for a significant increase in secondary school places in north west Cambridge, and Chesterton School has been working with the County Council to plan to meet this need.
Parents and residents in the Chesterton area are concerned that unless a clear date is set for the expansion of Chesterton, the school will not be able to take all the children from the local area who would like to attend.
Chesterton is the only secondary school in Cambridge which has not received significant capital investment in recent years, and it is time the County Council showed support for this very successful local school.
