“No plans to close” is the defiant message from the under-fire headteacher of a Burnley secondary school.

Miss Gill Broom, head of Hameldon Community College, was responding to an anonymous letter, allegedly written by disgruntled staff members, who claimed the school of just 360 pupils was in danger of closing.

The letter revealed the school has asked for a number of voluntary redundancies from staff, and also called for her resignation to give the school “one last fighting chance before it goes under”.
