I am sure the people of Maidenhead are delighted with the promotion of their MP to Prime Minister. However, this now puts a new perspective on the council's wish to re-introduce secondary modern education into the borough through the building of a new grammar school.
Previously this would have been a matter for the community (although so far the council has shown no sign of being interested in the 80 per cent of parents whose children will be in the secondary moderns). Now it is also a matter of concern for all of us outside the borough. I would therefore urge those who are opposed to this proposal to make their views known to the council as a matter of urgency. Those of us who do not want children labelled as failures are counting on you.
