Parents fret over grammar future

Ban on new grammars confirmed but annexe loophole remains

Parents who are desperate for their daughters to attend a grammar school annexe in Sevenoaks, instead of having to travel to Tonbridge or Tunbridge Wells, face continuing anxiety in the New Year. The government gave permission to Weald of Kent School, Tonbridge, to build the annexe last October, but campaign group Comprehensive Future are trying to mount a legal challenge against the decision, and have accused the school and the Department for Education of withholding evidence which could prove their case. Building work has stopped until the challenge has been dealt with.
