The school’s backers Knowledge School Trust has begun what it terms a ‘further, specific consultation in relation to the siting of Rugby Free Secondary School in Rokeby’.

The consultation started on Wednesday and ends at 1pm on Wednesday, July 13.

Campaigner Abbie Robson from protest group SHARE said: “This is a surprise but is what we have been calling for.

“We will be getting fully involved and encourage parents and residents to have their say.”
