D-Day on future of school.

A CRUNCH meeting to decide the future of Rugby's only Catholic secondary school is taking place today.

Members of Warwickshire County Council's cabinet are meeting this afternoon to decide whether to issue a statutory notice to close Bishop Wulstan Catholic School in Oak Street Rugby.

A three-week consultation period ended yesterday when 150 people sent letters and e-mails to the council.

Education bosses at the council say the school should close because of falling numbers and low standards. They say they don't think the school can improve its results.

But most parents and pupils said the school shouldn't be judged by academic achievements as many children benefit from a small school.
