Plans for sixth form at school are dropped
Casterton College Rutland has announced that it will not open a sixth form building in September.
The school, which is closing the campus of Rutland County College in Barleythorpe in August, had previously announced that it would move its sixth form facilities to its campus in Great Casterton to provide much needed support for the Stamford community, but without guaranteed applications the plans have been reassessed.
Principal Carl Smith said: “The decision to not move the sixth form to Casterton has not been taken lightly. We’ve had to assess the situation carefully but governors decided they could not viably commit to the sixth-form without confirmed application numbers.
