Shock as Rutland County College will not open for Year 12 classes
There was shock for students looking forward to starting sixth form classes next week at Rutland County College after they were told on Wednesday that Year 12 classes were cancelled.
Thirty students had signed up to start at the college, based at Barleythorpe, near Oakham, next week.
But the numbers enrolled were less than half of what was needed - 65 - to make running Year 12 classes viable so principal Carl Smith announced yesterday that Year 12 would be cancelled in 2016/2017. Year 13 classes will run as normal.
