Gladman to impose a huge burden on local school system

GetReading has reported on the spiralling cost of providing new school places in the Borough, in the light of a 44% rise in pupil numbers over 2010–2018. According to the report, each new primary school place in Reading costs on average a massive £23,579.

The Gladman development would theoreticaly fall within the catchment of Shiplake primary where potential pupils have been sent to distant schools because of the shortage of places. CAGE estimate that it would cost around £1.5m to provide new school places for the development – but where would the new classrooms go, with current school sites already bursting?
