School is back from the brink

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - COUNTRYFILE -

THREE years ago Spring Grove School at Wye was on the brink of clo­sure. Now it is plan­ning ex­pan­sion to meet de­mand from par­ents.

When a group of par­ents bought the school and set up a char­i­ta­ble trust in Septem­ber 2003 it only had 79 pupils en­rolled.

From this Septem­ber, they will have 221 on the roll and a wait­ing list.

The school is hold­ing an open day this Satur­day be­tween 10am and noon for any­one in­ter­ested in en­rolling their chil­dren.
