A group of parents is expected to stage a protest this afternoon (Thursday) against plans to close Charles Read Academy in Corby Glen.

Parents say they will gather outside the school to make their voice heard, but the school says it does not give its support to the protest.

CEO of the West Grantham Academies Trust Trudy Brothwell said: “Parents are rightly upset at the prospect of losing their local school. During the consultation all views are being considered and it will be for the Minister to make the decision. In the meantime I think we all have a responsibility to support Mrs Story (Charles Read head teacher) in maintaining a calm and positive atmosphere in the academy.”
