Chetwynde School in Barrow to close

CHETWYNDE School is to close in July.
Have your say
All my children went to Parkview and received a top-notch education and have all gone on to get degrees. I didn't have to pay extra for it and there could'nt have been a better education for them anywhere. It is a traversty it was allowed to close as I'm sure it would have welcomed Chetwynde pupils with open arms and they'd have done well there.
If some of you parents resent scrimping and scraping to send your kids to private school then why keep moaning about it and save it - you're so poor that you can russle up a 500k rescue package!
For the record, the reason I made the comment about cars was simply because the number of parents shelling out 8k a year on private education I don't have a problem with. What I do have a problem with is the fact that many of them, judging by the comments on hers, seem to be pleading poverty and bemoaning the lack of hoildays, having to scrub toilets etc. My heart goes out to you!! Not!!!
Why do people have such a chip on their shoulder about privately educated kids?? It's not like THEY are paying for those kids to be educated!! We pay tax, and part of that money goes towards state education and schools - but NOT private schools! They are totally funded by themselves......like the difference between the NHS and private hospitals. Some people just like a good old moan and that's fine - if it makes them happy then let them. It is those people who create the 'them and us' situations!
