Bede's back in business

ST BEDE'S Catholic Secondary school, which faced threats of closure by July 1987 because of falling rolls, was saved on April 1, when the County Education Committee of Cambridgeshire voted unanimously to continue maintenance of the school.

The decision followed meetings' at the school with parents, staff and governors, and last month's reversal, by the County Secondary Review Working Group, of its recommendation for closure.

St Bede's headmistress, Sr Dolores (RJM), told the Catholic Herald that the threat of closure had drawn "an extremely vigorous response" from parents, who campaigned over the last nine months to save their school.

Plans to transform the Catholic secondary school into an ecumenical college have gained the support of the diocese's bishops, Bishop Alan Clark of East Anglia and Anglican Bishop Peter Walker of Ely. According to Sr Dolores, Anglican parents have also come out in support of the plans.
