Save our Mayfield School

Prevent the potential closure of Henry Prince First School Mayfield.

We are a small community and we feel that the proposed closure of our local school will have a huge impact on the community as a whole. The school has been in operation for over a 150 years and is the hub of of our small village. The proposed closure will have a great impact on local families and the wider community i.e. the church, local scout group needless to say the pupils and staff.

Council response

Thank you to the 158 people who signed the petition to prevent the closure of The Henry Prince First School, Mayfield. The governing body consultation is now closed and they are considering the responses and putting together a Business Case looking at the likely number of pupils now signed up and how the finances can be managed. The governors have agreed that there will now be a period of time to work with the County Council to consider the Business Case before deciding whether to issue a Statutory Notice. The consultation meetings held have shown the considerable support for the school from the wider community and this will be considered by the governing body.
