Submission to the public consultation on The Charter School East Dulwich
I am responding to the consultation on the plan to build a new secondary school - The Charter School East Dulwich.
I fully support the plan to build a new secondary school on part of the site of Dulwich Community Hospital.
I fully support the school being run by The Charter School Educational Trust - The Charter School is rated by Ofsted as an outstanding school and is oversubscribed with more applicants than there are places.
There needs to be full consideration given to, and consultation on, the 'nodal finish point' for admissions because there is a long standing and acute problem with secondary school provision of the quality parents want. And we know that many parents fail to get any of their six choices for secondary school.
It's important that all parents, and other local stakeholders, are given the chance to have their say.
This is about building a great new school to serve the needs of the diverse community by providing an excellent education for its young people, and it has my full support.
