Tom Morrison visits Bramhall High School as campaign for new school takes off

20 Dec 2023

Tom Morrison joined councillors Mark Jones and Suzanne Wyatt as they met with Headteacher, Mr Williams to discuss the recent building closures due to the ongoing RAAC concrete issues.

The Liberal Democrat team started a petition for the school to be added to the Government’s School Rebuild programme last week, after Bramhall High was forced to close large parts of its building after dangerous RAAC concrete was discovered.

Tom, Mark and Suzanne took a tour around the school, meeting staff and students as they were shown the extent of the closures and how much it has had an impact on the day-to-day running of the school.

The petition to get a new school for Bramhall has so far gathered hundreds of signatures from across the area, and Tom hopes to submit it to the Government early next year.

“I’d like to thank Mr Williams and his team for taking the time to show us round the school today” said Tom.

“The staff have done an incredible job under really hard circumstances, they should be applauded. However, it’s clear that much needed funding must now be released by the Government to get Bramhall High a new school building.”

“Years of Conservative under funding has put Bramhall High and other schools across the country in an impossible position, where closures have been inescapable. This under funding must stop now and instead our schools should be getting the investment they deserve.”
