I've posted this on Facebook so some will have already seen it.
If you haven't already done so can you please sign this petition?
It relates to our Holly's school, St. Ambrose Barlow (formerly St. Catherine's).
The school is the only surviving secondary school in the area and the Archdiocese has asked Sefton Council to start a period of consultation with a view to closing it next August. Needless to say, our local community is up in arms about this and a strong campaign is already under way to protect the school's future. Please sign the petition to do your bit. You could even pass it on too if that's not too much trouble.
Holly is one of the lucky ones as she starts her Year 11 in September so her group is guaranteed to be able to finish their studies in their
school - younger kids may have to move during that vital 2 year GCSE period.
Sefton Council have announced widespread plans to build houses at various sites - many in the Netherton area - what is the point of doing so if those who live there are robbed of local amenities such as schools?http://www.thepetitionsite.com/526/801/785/save-st-ambrose-barlow-catholic-high-school-netherton/?taf_id=14013034&cid=fb_na#
Thanks in advance.
