New schools for Bromley Town

By | April 17, 2017

One of the biggest issues facing the town is the shortage of school places, especially given the number of new homes being built.

We have spoken to many parents who are concerned about the difficulty getting places at popular schools such as Valley and Bickley Primary Schools.

As your local councillors, we have been putting pressure on senior councillors and officers to support good new schools in and around Bromley Town. As well as the new Harris Academy on Kingswood Road, we are pleased to say that three new schools have been proposed in and around the Bromley Town area.

Councillor Michael Rutherford said: “We believe these new schools will provide the quality, local school places desperately needed by Bromley Town parents and children. We are looking at ways of minimising traffic such as staggering starting times with neighbouring schools and deterring drop-offs.”
