A MYSTERY investor – backed by local business owners – has thrown a threatened school a survival lifeline.
Have your say
Is that with or without the RN's Childrens Education Allowance of up to six grand a term?
John, people are not saying that Chetwynde parents work hard but if you have 2 children there you must be paying at least Â£15,000. That's a lot of money, some people don't even make that in a year. So I would put you slightly higher than 'working class'. This is why the school is struggling to attract new children from Barrow - people don't have that sort of money spare.
Wonderful news. I'm overjoyed that Chetwynde is going to be saved for the time being, it is a wonderful school. I have many a fond memory of my time there, as do my four children, two nephews and one niece who are currently attending the school.
