What parental demands did these changes respond to?

Parental demand for co-educational schools is on the rise due to daily logistics and work commitments affected by the geographical challenge of dropping off and collecting children and siblings from different schools. This in turn, increases traffic congestion in the local area, which exacerbates the issue.

Discussions over recent years have shown that most parents do not prioritise single sex education and many parents expressed a desire for their daughter to mix with boys throughout their educational journey.
