A newly formed campaign group against plans to build a new grammar school in Kent says the plans are 'expensive and impractical' and 'bound to fail.'
The Kent Education Network says the proposals which will see the Weald of Kent school in Tonbridge create a new annex in Sevenoaks will not solve the problem of pupils having to travel ten miles each day to school.
