Millions more for two-school option say ESC
ALTERNATIVE plans for two 11-18 schools could cost almost £100m. more than Education’s three-school proposals, the committee has indicated.
Education has released costings for all of the two-school permutations, however the accuracy of these have been disputed by one of the deputies behind the alternative model.
