The land occupied by the King George V playing field and the old Evans school field, including the clinic, is a medium term Council target for a new school for St Oswald's. The notion probably resides in a file that is no doubt subject to restricted access.
Checks have already been made to see if the Lord Gerard covenant, restricting the site for exclusive use for children, can be overturned. Given that the current Lord Gerard is the last of a distinguished line no doubt some smart lawyer can convince others that the restrictive covenant dies with the passing of the Gerard lineage.
Completion of the school project will throw up a juicy development opportunity. The St Oswald's school site and playing field together with the bowling greens and the Recreation club could be available as a single development site.
