The town’s MP has backed the creation of a free school in Wokingham.
A group of parents are working to get the support of an educational trust to set up Evendons Free School.
John Redwood said: “Free schools offer a good way to provide more school places in areas like Wokingham, and to provide parents with more choice of school.
“Oakbank is up and running locally, showing how a dedicated team of parents, well-wishers and teaching staff can drive through a new school rapidly and have it open and working quite quickly.
“I wish people well with a scheme to provide more primary school places in Wokingham, as we are going to need them.”
Oakbank was established after a bid by the West of Wokingham Parent Group (WoWPG) to the Department of Education.
