I wish for an additional non-denominational secondary school in Borough. I'd happily swap a school, or any other piece of infrastructure that would help families to continue living in SE1, for some more flats (which is what that site would be otherwise).
Southwark isn't exactly over-endowed with secondary schools. Especially if you're not a regular worshipper at an approved church (and goodness knows why churches should have a monopoly over access to state-funded education in the first place, but that's not the issue we're discussing here).
Exactly how many of the Graveney school pupils come from far away, out of interest? (Not that it's really relevant to this discussion, for many reasons, not least that it's partially selective and open to pupils from all over Wandsworth). I'm interested to know how you come by this info.
...if you press it, they will come.
