Seven Kings High one of several schools which could expand to cope with demand
Seven Kings High School could be expanded to include classrooms for primary-aged children as part of a wide-ranging feasibility study.
The school in Ley Street, Ilford, is being looked at for expansion to help the borough deal with increasing demand for school places.
During a cabinet meeting on Tuesday at Redbridge Town Hall, High Road, Ilford, councillors agreed to press ahead with the study for extra school places from September 2013.
The possible expansion of Downshall, William Torbitt and Chadwell primary schools by one form of entry will all be looked at.
The council will also be exploring the feasibility of Gordon Infants School becoming an all age primary school. It currently only accepts children up to the age of seven.
