 THE MIDDLE SCHOOL IS TURNING AWAY  CHILDREN,  the headmaster stated that at the recent meeting at the community centre... and if you build all these additinal houses where do the  offspring of these new residents go to school ???
 
the councils plan is to ship them to tilehouse school in denham....
 
i still think the most sensible option is to swap sites, move the middle school to the holy cross site  and make any required ammendments needed- any space not utilised for educational purposes could be returned to the community , change the current middle school site into residential use,    and expand the village  slowly...... the addiitonal large numbers of proposed housing on the site will just cause strain on current services and utilities if done in one go, and in one place, cant the district /area as a whole take a proportion of the required additional housing,  why is a large number  allocated to CSP ???
 
is that because someone re-classified the holy cross site from educational to residential some time ago while no one was looking ?

Damn right there'd be objections. It took me a year to dig mine over from the meadow like state it was in when I took it on. I'd rather not have to do that again from scratch at a new site even if it was only "a few hundred yards" from where it is now.

Robertswood has spare capacity and takes lots of pupils from Denham.  So they can stop taking from Denham and take children from Chalfont - problem solved.
If The middle school goes to Holy Cross, Robertswood may struggle, it is a good school but you will probably end up merging the two - and creating traffic chaos in the centre of the village.

Most councils in the country have primary school capacity issues in the next 5 years. The population is growing and the government is not investing in new primary schools. Most councils are trying to add on classrooms to existing school buildings on the cheap.
Is back in the game! :)

mr underwood ( head of the middle school) talked about turning down approx 40 students a year who request a place in the academy....

robertswood may have capacity now...... but when you build several hundred homes the chances are there will be some offspring who in turn will need school places- so lets say that takes up the shortfall in robertswood and fills the places there.... so where do the rest go ?- we ship them tilehouse school ??

i understand the reputation of robertswood is better than that of tilehouse too.....so the places will be in demand

There must be at least three hundred homes in Layters, Leachcroft and surrounding roads.

Don't be ridiculous. It isn't even close to being that.

The middle school is not turning children away because of the lack of school places in the village.

Those two statements are incongruous; they are non sequitur.
