The sale of the Whippingham Primary School site has just appeared on the Isle of Wight council Forward Plan (below) published today.
It was one of the many council building that the IW council announced in May that they might sell, which as a whole raised a considerable number of angry comments from Islanders.
The sale of Whippingham Primary will now enter consultation with “School Staff, Members and School Users / Parents”, before a decision is made by Cllr George Brown, before the end of September 2011.
History to disposal
Back in September 2009, a majority of IW councillors voted (32 to 4, 1 abstention) to discontinue Whippingham Primary.
Since then Queensgate Foundation Primary school was formed by combining East Cowes primary and Whippingham.
It has been working over the two sites, with the intention that the school will be sited on the current Osborne Middle School site.
