THOMAS CLARKSON: The commitment has been broken

WE are writing to you as highly annoyed A-level students from the Thomas Clarkson Community College Sixth Form in Wisbech, which is in partnership with the College of West Anglia.
Only on May 29, we were individually called into the office of Richard Bradley, the Head of Faculty for A-level subjects. There, we were told that we were moving to the King's Lynn college campus due to insufficient funding from the Thomas Clarkson Community College.
It amazes us that they find it practical to tell us this bad news just four days before our exams which caused undue stress and pressure that was not needed. Four of us previously moved from King Edward VII Sixth Form in King's Lynn due to the large class sizes and inconvenient travel arrangements. Mr Bradley tried to convince us the larger class sizes will help us in our studies when we know from experience this is not the case.
The subjects affected by the move include chemistry, maths and physics, the most academic subjects available. The only Sixth Form in Cambridgeshire that provides these subjects is Wisbech Grammar School, which is not open to all candidates.

A commitment was made between staff and students to run a two-year A-level course; the college and the school have broken this commitment due to "insufficient funding"!
We have tried to contact Mr Bradley directly, but unfortunately he is unable to answer a phone. This decision affects all of us at the Sixth form, our friends and our parents.
