Gillian Troughton, our candidate for Copeland, said:
“Students, parents and teachers at Whitehaven Academy have been let down for too long by this Tory Government.
“The Tories scrapped Labour plans for a new school building, they forced through the academisation of the school and then refused a refurbishment again in 2015.
“Our children only have one chance to get a good education and the situation at Whitehaven academy is unacceptable. The Tory Government needs to sort this out.”
