"There are enough places for children in Cookham but not necessarily at one they particularly want"

Who is paying for the sex change so they can go to Desborough then?

No there are not currently today enough secondary school places :

for all RBWM resident children and
for children just across our border who live closer to an RBWM school than one in their own Council area and
for children with allocated places today, but hope to go to a non RBWM or fee paying school and
to satisfy preferences to go to a single sex school which is the same sex as the child and
enable Cookham children to cycle safely to their nearest school in Furze Platt and
to prevent the people of Cookham doing everything in their power to put right the mess !

I hope that's clear !   MJ Saunders - local activist over the schools fiasco and RBWM Councillor for Cookham
