Can a definitive statement on the AERO Concrete Problems & Closure of John Mason School be issued please?

Reported via desktop anonymously at 15:12, Saturday 9 September 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and Vale of White Horse District Council less than a minute later

Its been announced that AERO concrete has been found at John Mason School. How extensive is it please? Will the School have to be demolished/bulldozed.? Will it have to be merged with Larkmead? You know Schools vanish and dissappear over time youll find. Many Schools from the 1960s and 70s no longer exist or exist in name only. If the concrete was extensively used in all the floors demolition might be the only option. Can the Press please stop referring to this unfortunate school as '(an Abingdon School')as it confuses it with Abingdon School (Royces)which as far as is known despite its extensive rebuilding projects not currently affected by Aero Concrete. Karmas A Bitch.
