Proposals on how to cope with the rising demand for places in Windsor's schools will be discussed by the Royal Borough.
Cabinet members will discuss a report by the children’s services overview and scrutiny panel in a meeting at the Guildhall on Wednesday night.
Scrutiny panel members are recommending that two options are considered to manage the increasing number of school places in the Windsor area.
The first is to expand the existing three senior schools - Windsor Boys' School, Windsor Girls' School and Churchmead in Datchet.
The second is to move the Windsor system from its present three-tier structure to a controversial two-tier structure.
School pupils now transfer from first to middle schools aged nine and then again at 13 to senior schools.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
