'No cause for concern' over places at new super school.

EDUCATION bosses have moved to reassure parents that there will be places for all pupils at a proposed new super school.

Plans are being discussed to close Pensnett High School and The Crestwood School in Dudley and replace them with a new academy school on the Crestwood site at Kingswinford.

The proposals will be put out for public consultation this autumn.

John Freeman, director of children's services at Dudley Council, said: "We have made it clear that every pupil attending Pensnett School and Crestwood School will be guaranteed a place at the proposed new academy. "Parents have absolutely no cause for concern over this."

Mr Freeman said the proposals to close the two schools and open an academy would be subject to full public consultation.

Parents of primary-aged children will continue to be able to express a preference for all local schools.
