Grammar school: Kent County Council backs expansion plan

Help

Kent County Council has voted to allow a grammar school to expand onto a new site.

The decision is likely to lead to the first major expansion of a grammar school in England for half a century.

The law in England forbids the opening of any new grammar schools, but recent changes allow them - and other popular schools - to expand.
