HC Deb 21 March 1973 vol 853 c405
Mr. Ian Lloyd

I beg leave to present a petition to the House on behalf of over 1,100 pupils of Wakeford School, Leigh Park, in the county of Hampshire.

The petition states That Hampshire County Council proposes to reorganise the secondary schools of the excepted district of Havant and Waterloo in such a way that Wakefield School ceases to be an all-through, 11–18 bilateral school, and becomes an 11–16 comprehensive school, feeding Sixth Form colleges at 16-plus, which will damage our educational prospects and also the character of the area. Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your honourable House will act so as to ensure that Wakeford School will remain an 11–18 all-through school, thereby serving the best interest of its pupils, and the needs of the community. And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

To lie upon the Table.
