HC Deb 22 February 1922 vol 150 cc1919-20W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether extensive alterations are contemplated to South-lands Grammar School, New Romney, Kent; what is the cost of the proposed alterations; in what proportion will the cost be borne by the taxpayers and the ratepayers; and how many children are at present attending this school?


The local education authority have submitted to the Board, and the Board have approved, a scheme for the adaptation of existing buildings for this school at an estimated cost of £4,400, which will be met as to half from the rates and half from the Board's grants. The number of pupils in the school on 1st October, 1921, was 54, but the school has only recently been established by the local education authority, who intend that it shall accommodate 120 scholars.
