Protest Meeting Over Plans For New South Wimbledon Free School

Campaigners fear it could result in closure of High Path Community Centre

Campaigners fighting over plans for a new free school in South Wimbledon are staging a protest meeting on Monday (September 19).

It is understood that the plan, involving a secondary school for more than 1,000 pupils, would mean the loss of Merton Abbey primary school's playing field and the relocation of a centre for adults with learning difficulties.

The plans, which have been discussed at a secret Merton Borough council meeting, are thought to involve closing the High Path Community Centre for a free school run by the Harris Academy to be based.

The meeting takes place at 7.30pm on Monday at the Parish Hall of St John the Divine, High Path, SW19 2JY.

It will be attended by leaders of the High Path Community Association, representatives and parents of children at Merton Abbey Primary School and carers for those with learning disabilities who use the High Path community centre.
