New hope for Chetwynde School in Barrow as £500k rescue plan is launched

A LIFELINE was thrown to closure-threatened Chetwynde School last night when a £500k plan was launched to save it.
Have your say
In reply to Alan Wood and comments of a similar nature, I would ask that you refrain from making comments until you have fully considered the issues raised by the possibility of Chetwynde closing. There would be a large number of students in the school who, in the event of school closure, will not be able to achieve the results they have been working so hard for because of the change in exam boards and curriculum. The overflow of students will strain other schools, staff in the Furness area such as doctors will be reluctant to come here as they will want to provide the best education for their children and there would be redunancies throughout the school. So to say that the only losers in this situation are "shops selling the uniform at ridiculous prices," Is quite frankly ridicoulus regardless of your uniform expertise.
I hope they save Chetwynde. I also hope that the Headteachers of others schools in Barrow, Dalton and Ulverston are trawling Twitter and punishing their students on there that are threatening to bully anyone who transfers. What a disgrace and embarrassment to their schools and peers!
@Catherine Thompson, if you look closely at those accounts you'll see that the reason the school made a profit that year was due to selling land. This is obviously not something that can be done year after year.
