Isn't SE1 being a residential area the point? If you want families to grow up in this area and not move out and leave it as an office-dominated deadzone, then more school places are needed, as Southwark Council leader Peter John has confirmed. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-23932684

Mark R, totally agree ! When an area like this becomes just transient office workers, tourists and students then it plays a fool's game with the future.

Agreed. Especially as there already a number of primary schools in the area as well.

The campaign to turn a bad decision (closing the Fire Station) into a good decision (selling to a developer who is committed to building a secondary school in their plans) hits a critical path this Friday. LFEPA are meeting at 2.30pm on Friday 1st May to decide whether to accept the bid from this developer or not.
We are gathering as many local people as we can to be there at 2.00pm to greet committee members on their way in to the meeting to show them that there is a real local desire to have a much needed secondary school in the community and hopefully urge them to vote for the right action (one that does not include blocks of more unaffordable flats!)

If you have the time, please do join us there!, Victoria (SE1 Parents)

I forgot to mention where the meeting is being held. It's at the London Fire Brigade Headquarters at 169, union Street SE1 0LL.
