It said: “A majority of members at an RSSKL Association meeting voted for a non-binding resolution to undertake a managed voluntary closure of the school. Over the next few days the new board of trustees will be exploring the options, taking into account the best interests of pupils, parents and staff during this time.”

A later statement added: “A majority of members at an RSSKL Association meeting voted for a non-binding resolution to undertake a managed voluntary closure of the school.

“Over the next few days the new Board of Trustees will be exploring the options, taking into account the best interests of pupils, parents and staff during this time.

“While we disagreed with some of the elements of the recent Ofsted report, it also identified weaknesses that we acknowledge fell below the high standards that parents are right to expect. The circumstances in which this occurred have contributed to a significant strain on the school’s financial resources, such that voluntary managed closure is the most appropriate option.”
