The question of even larger Thanet schools rumbles on. One of our regular readers writes in to add to the story and ask councillors what they make of it all:
“Just to keep you up to date and ahead of the Gazette, here is the latest from my mole at KCC. I would love to know what the councillors have to say about this!
The huge swathe of land in Pysons Road is all owned by KCC. The plan, to be complete by 2012, is that there will be four schools on the one giant site, with a joint usage central area.
Ellington and Clarendon will be built as twin (federated) schools (Girls), and Hereson and Chatham House will also have two new schools built as twin (federated) schools, (boys).
They will then have new facilities that all four campuses can share.
One must presume that the finance for this will come from the sale of the lucrative town school sites.”
