A teaching union has called on the new Education Secretary to scrap London's first free school for sixth formers.
Surrey Heath MP Michael Gove, who lost his job in today's reshuffle, was the architect of the controversial free school policy. More than 50 free schools have opened in London since 2011 with another 70 in the pipeline.
Teaching unions have been highly critical of the planned Harris Westminster sixth form college which is due to open its doors in September. The school will be based in a former Ministry of Justice office block in Tothill Street, close to Parliament.
More than 50% of pupils will be from deprived backgrounds but will be subject to an academic selection process.
