The governing body for Durand Academy Trust has come to the decision to close its boarding school, Tes has reported.
The reason behind the closure is down to government officials according to the governing body.
In a letter seen by Tes, parents were told that the trust could not find the “required saving” and as a result “need to make the painful and very difficult decision to close the boarding school”.
The letter went on to say that the fault “does not lie with the governors”, but lies with the Education and Skills Funding Agency.
It adds: "It is clear to us the EFA did not want the boarding school to be a success and are willing to risk your children's future education by attempting to take over the school.
"I am sure the governors in place next year will fight against this and hopefully will succeed."
