The aim of this petition is to show that there is demand for a secondary school in the South of Wokingham area.
Wokingham Borough Council has identified a shortfall in places from 2017/18. However, there is already an existing demand for a secondary schoolfrom parents in Arborfield, Finchampstead and Barkham ,who cannot get their preferred choice of school - due to the distance based on 'tie-breaker' criteria. This is resulting in children being allocated a space in a school several miles from where they live- a situation which is not acceptable. This will only get worse when the 3,500 mini-town is built on the Garrison. A new secondary school is desperately needed now and the best way to get it is through a SOW parent led free school bid. Thank you.
