Closed private school axes jobs

Newlands School went into administration after talks failed
Two hundred staff members are being made redundant at an independent school which has gone into administration.
Newlands School in Seaford, Sussex, announced on Monday that it was closing, leaving about 450 pupils without a place after the Easter break.
He said the school had "a bad year last year"
due to the increase in national insurance
contributions and teachers' pensions costs imposed by government.
And he also said the school had
found parents had "less spending money
" to spend on private education.

And all of this in Sussex of all places! Where HPI has ravaged thousands and precipiated thousands more into debt. What a "miracle economy" it has all been.

It's not surprising.

That's a pupil:staff ratio of almost 2:1

My school had about 900 pupils and approx 60 staff members (inc admin, ground staff etc)

I don't think this has anything to do with inflation and costs - just bad business
