Marylebone Boys School – letter to Michael Gove MP

Dear Mr Gove

I am writing to support Marylebone Boys School’s search for a permanent site so that the school can admit pupils this September.

As you will know, a number of permanent sites have been identified by the School, including the long vacant school site at Moxon Street and the former Westminster College site in Cosway Street (both owned by Westminster City Council) and the vacant former Seymour Street police station (owned by the Mayor). All three sites are identified for sale for private housing.

I am told that the School has a number of temporary sites lined up but none of these can be moved forward until a permanent site has been agreed. I am also told that both Westminster City Council and the Mayor have, so far, refused to release the sites in their ownership.

At the same time, over 350 applications have been made for the 120 places available this September and parents have contacted me to ask when a decision on a permanent site will be made.

As a parent yourself who has just secured a place for your daughter at Grecoat you will no doubt be relieved to have overcome this important hurdle. You will therefore understand the frustration of the Marylebone parents who are still waiting for a decision.

I would be grateful for an update on the situation.

Many thanks

yours sincerely

Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg
Leader of the Labour Group

Westminster City Council

  1. Please ensure that the eventual site also supports SEN therapy for Marylebone special needs kids after hours.
