A school for children with hearing and communication
difficulties has a secure future thanks to an agreement between
Camden’s Local Education Authority and the Rayners Special
Education Trust, set up last year to safeguard the school and
expand its services.
Buckinghamshire-based Penn School looked set for closure after
the authority decided it could no longer sustain it due to the
falling number of attending pupils.
But earlier this month, Camden Council announced that the
school, which has the capacity to teach 60 children suffering from
physical disabilities, deafness and other communication problems,
will be bought by the Trust and taken over in June this year.
