Fareham Labour Party have hit out against Fareham MP Suella Fernandes plans to set up a free school in the area.
Jim Carr, Fareham Labour Party Chairman and former teacher said: “Ms Fernandes comments are very astute for someone who had only lived in the area for just over six months – Fareham currently has no A-Level provision. The closest college is St Vincent’s in Gosport. That said I believe there is a more pressing need for primary and secondary school places across the constituency.”
Fareham College dropped their A-Level provision as a result of the consistently low take up.
“I don’t think there is any proof that free schools are any better then state ones.”
