USA Sikhs Want Slough Town FC Site For School

The Sikh trust intending to build a secondary school in Slough has name the proposed new home of Slough Town FC as its ideal site.

The Slough Sikh Education Trust says the old Arbour Vale Schools site, in Stoke Road, is the only one that can be supported under the Government's free school initiative.

But they were told when meeting council officials last month that it has already been allocated to bring the Rebels back into town, with proposals well under way.

Nick Singh Kandola, chairman of The Slough Sikh Education Trust, which is already associated with Khalsa Primary School directly next door in Wexham Road, said they are 'disappointed' with the council.

Once a site is found, the school - with 50 per cent of places reserved for children of the Sikh faith and 50 per cent places open for local children of other or no faith - would open in September 2012.

Cllr Rob Anderson, council leader, said the football plan would also bring other sports facilities, community uses and affordable family housing.

Steve Easterbrook, Slough Town FC chairman, said the club - currently based in Beaconsfield, where the average gate is 257 - should be moving forward in the next few weeks.

The West Wing Arts Centre on the Arbour Vale site is set to be incorporated into the new library and cultural centre as part of the Heart of Slough regeneration project.
