    Amberfield School to close
    Wednesday 12th October 2011
    Amberfield School will close on 31 October 2011 and go in to liquidation thereafter due to
    unsustainable financial losses. The Board of Governors announced the decision to all parents
    today. The school will work with parents to find other schools in the area for the pupils
    affected.
    The school has been hit by a drop in pupil numbers in recent years which has led to significant
    losses being incurred.
    Chairman of Governors, Alistair Lang said: “This is a very sad day which I know will be a body
    blow to our pupils, parents and staff. Amberfield is a small school which has been a real
    strength for its many pupils over the years. But its small size and its particular style in this
    difficult economic climate has made it increasingly difficult to keep afloat. Despite a great deal
    of effort behind the scenes in recent weeks we have reluctantly accepted we have no option
    but to close the school.”
    Amberfield is an independent day school for girls aged 2-16 years and boys aged 2-7 years.
    The school, at Nacton near Ipswich, currently has 157 pupils.
    Governors and staff led by Headmistress Mrs Linda Ingram will work with schools and parents
    to get the pupils in to new schools as soon as possible.
    Mrs Ingram said: “My heart goes out to all our wonderful pupils and staff – this really is a sad
    day for us all. We are determined to do everything we can to ensure the transition of our
    pupils and our staff to new schools and jobs as quickly and easily as possible.”
    Amberfield employs 32 teaching staff and 23 non teaching staff. The school was founded in
    1927.
    Ends

    I had a quick ganders here one night over the weekend ;) didnt go inside anywhere. Yes there were cameras. Where the main entrance is, and the door is blocked up, I could hear a ticking coming from the inside? What was this.


    2 of the cars are to do with people that live in some farm houses or something.

    My mate who works near it says there were 3 police cars there this morning!

    Luke, if you're local and wanna go for another snout about, and as you don't have PM rights yet do you have an e-mail address or something?! ;)

    I used to go to school here. Had a look around last week, everywhere is locked. Everything pretty much untouched in the classrooms.

    There is a family who live in the middle of the site and a security guard who visists about twice a day. There is CCTV installed too.

    I'd love to get inside and have a proper look rather than mooch around the outside.

    Spooky, not far from me either at all. Been here once - met by security when leaving too! This was about a year ago though. Not thought about it since, mainly due to how prone to arson it is.
