Is Boys' High really a school in such decay?New!

Letter from a primary school parent to Herts and Essex Observer

This letter was published in the July 28 edition of the Herts & Essex Observer

I was appalled to find once again my child's primary school book bag being used to send home propaganda trying to justify moving two schools into the Green Belt.

The letter urged support for a project which would create only 45 extra school places, one third of which could go to children from outside this area.

In it, the two heads bemoan their decaying buildings, but consider the following from the Bishop's Stortford High's website and decide for yourself if this is a school that needs replacing or whether your child attends one with significantly fewer modern facilities!

The heads' plans would see all this demolished. Oh, and "almost half of the pupils travel five or more miles to reach the school."
