RISC's Response to the Richmond College Consultation:

Richmond Council is consulting on plans to build an 11-16 community Secondary School on part of the Richmond College site in Egerton Road.  Full details of the consultation can be found on the Council's website, and the deadline for comments is 11th March.

Note that a maximum of 100 words is allowed for comments in the response form.  RISC has responded as follows:

"Please see full feedback on behalf of the Richmond Inclusive Schools Campaign team: here.

Essentially we welcome the proposals for the new secondary school, given the need for capacity, the inclusive admissions policy, the shared site and continued Council involvement. But we remain concerned about the overall provision of places, especially in view of the loss of Clifden Road and misleading statements in the consultation".
