Are you sure the Middle School system has been abolished?
Is it not so,that in certain areas of England the Middle School system has been phased out.But,in some areas the Middle School system still exists.
Amazing that two local schools were among the first to be taken out of action and demolished. I wonder whether it was due to them both having a lot of land and being in good building areas. 'Prime' decision!
One of the other Middle Schools was left for quite a time. This was probably due to the school not having much land(it only had a large playground) and it wasn't in a prime building area.
We know there had to be some changes,because there was a shortage of school children in comparison to the available schools.Therefore,an easy solution,close some schools and place the school children into the remaining schools,which,'idiomatically speaking','kills two birds with one stone'.
It will be interesting to see what happens if there is a sudden increase in chldbirth,because not only have those schools gone,the land has also gone.
