Camden New Journal - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Published: 12 June 2008
Decision is terrible for pupils

• MY eight-year-old son is a pupil at Edith Neville School.
It is a fantastic place and I feel that it offers the children of Somers Town a bright future.
I’m so proud of it that three years ago I decided to become a school governor.
As Councillor Theo Blackwell wrote, the decision by the Liberal Democrats running Camden Council to try to force Edith Neville to share its site with the Frank Barnes School is terrible (Rush on school decision, May 29).
It is thoroughly unfair to impose this on our wonderful school.
The decision was reached without any proper consultation.
It is torturing us and affecting our children’s education.
It has made parents very unhappy and angry.
I have every sympathy with Frank Barnes School, who have been told they need to find a new home so that their land can be used by the council for another school.
But their answer does not lie with Edith Neville School.
My question is simple: how would the proposed change benefit the children of Edith Neville and the local community in Somers Town?
So far, we’ve not heard a single word on this from the council.
