WE are surprised at the sudden resignation of John Bennett (as head of Thomas Clarkson Community College, Wisbech) and wish him well in his future employment.
This group has been receiving numerous calls from parents with regards to:
n Future A-Level provision,
n When and if the school will become a trust, and
n What is the financial situation?
We agree with Gordon Jeyes from the LEA that too little has been done by the governing body to bring the budget in line with income.

- 4 Knife-wielding teen jailed after week-long crime spree in Wisbech

- 6 Inside Wisbech's new 'Get Out' escape room

- 9 Recap: Main road through Wisbech town centre shut after serious crash

But we would remind Mr Jeyes that the large increase in staff, and therefore costs, took place when the Interim Board was in place.
This board was set up by, and almost all members were appointed by, the LEA - a board which Mr Jeyes was a member of. This board went on to form the majority of the Shadow Board which is still in place.
The parents group would like to have public meeting with the LEA and Shadow Board to discuss the situation. The parents group can be contacted at www.thomasclarksonforum.co.uk.
