Spelthorne College Set to Close

In my day it was Ashford County Grammar School, though I did not attend myself. In recent years the College underwent a series of mergers, culminating in becoming a victim of the Labour Government’s financial incompetence.
Cash for vital rebuilding work has simply run out, with the students now housed in Portakabins. The sixth form college is in limbo, because Brooklands College cannot afford to keep their Ashford Campus open.
It is the only one left in Spelthorne, and we have a relatively high number of NEETs.
Let's hope a solution can be found.
