Last year Kent County Council announced that it was planning to merge Walmer Science College with Castle Community College to have one school across the two sites.
There has been much local concern about this and I have heard from lots of parents and pupils who have set out their passionate views about the plans.
Today I joined the local community in attending a public meeting about the plans at Deal Town hall organised by Save Walmer Science College. Some really important points were made, and it was a good opportunity to explain my position and hear from those involved.
Personally my priority is to ensure that local education is the best it can be. We need to focus on what's best for our children first and foremost. I have had discussions with KCC about this and will keep pressing for the right decision to be made.
