THE date of a meeting to decide the future of all-boys education in Portsmouth has been changed.

Councillor Neill Young, city council cabinet member for children and education, will now decide on Monday, July 14 whether to make City of Portsmouth Boys’ School co-educational.

Cllr Young was due to make a decision on Tuesday, but the meeting had to be re-arranged due to personal commitments.

As reported in The News, Portsmouth North MP Penny Mordaunt has issued a plea for the proposals to be reversed and the school should instead be transformed into a single sex technical college with a Royal Navy cadet unit.

The new meeting will be held at 4.30pm and is due to be held in conference room A of the civic offices at Guildhall Square.
