THE little all-age Catholic School at Aston-le-Walls. Northamptonshire, which has taken in many non-Catholic children since 1927. has been saved from elosing by the Ministry of Education

Northants County Council had ordered the school to be closed because of the small number of pupils, who could be accommodated elsewhere, but parents and local residents protested, Fr, John Maunsell, who has been parish priest for some years, said that there were other schools in the county with less than his 20 pupils.

The Ministry has decided that the Aston-le-Walls school will continue as a Junior and Infants School after the senior pupils have been transferred to the new Catholic Secondary Modern school at Banbury early next year.
