St Patrick's could be saved from closure? Not good enough. The Diocese believes St Patrick's in Thornaby has a secure future? Not good enough.
BSF BSF B lymphocyte stimulatory factor. Cllr Cunningham's "viable and transform learning opportunities for Thornaby's young". Is St Patrick's not already in the top ten achievers in the country?
What is needed to assure people that we do not have to go down this route again is for Stockton Council to guarantee to the Diocese of Middlesbrough The Diocese of Middlesbrough is a Roman Catholic diocese based in Middlesbrough, England and is part of the province of Liverpool.

Thornaby, with its huge new build programme of housing, should increase numbers of pupils at St Patrick's, which has always had a record of good education and teaching values.
Park View Care Home in Thornaby was rated top-class by a government inspector, but Stockton Borough Council were still determined to close it down.
