SUPER SCHOOL PLANS GO BEFORE COUNCIL

Plans to build a new 'super school' in Folkestone go before Shepway District Council tonight (11 January), but whatever the recommendations the final decision rests with the County Council.


Some local residents have objected saying that the plans need to be changed including the siting of the new Academy next to the Channel School which it will replace.

There have been complaints about access and the future of a residential home which would have to be demolished.

The Folkestone Academy would be a new state school with a centre of excellence for the creative arts, European culture and languages.
