If Eden Valley closes the two designated schools for the majority
of Eden Valley children are The Bradbourne Girl's School, and
The Wildernesse School for Boys, both in Sevenoaks - ten miles

children will be discriminated against because they will not be
able to go to the 'After School Clubs' as we believe there will
be no transport provided to take them home if they stay late?
In attending Sevenoaks schools Edenbridge children having longer
journeys and homework to do will not have time to attend after
school organisations/clubs in Edenbridge?

to oversubscribed Schools? So more children could come to Eden
It may be difficult for children at Eden Valley School with special
educational needs to adjust to the new schools and the long travel
to and from them?
