AS a parent in the Kilburn area I know how difficult it is to get our children into a Camden secondary school. So I was really pleased when I heard that the Liberal Democrats on the council were making plans to build a new school at Swiss Cottage, and to rebuild the special school in Swiss Cottage in a brand new building.

I thought it was sad that some people chose to oppose the plans, rather than think about the fact that over half of the children who go to a Camden primary school don't get a place in a Camden secondary school.

So it is good news that the council has won its legal fight against opponents of the new schools.

It's time now to forget the arguments, and get on with the job of building the new schools that Camden parents have been waiting for.
