I READ with interest that the Friends School is having to scale back its plans following the overwhelming public concern regarding this development.

However, it is interesting to note the governors have decided school facilities, such as the junior school classrooms and sixth accommodation are to get the chop and not "Phase 1" of the controversial performing arts centre. Can anyone tell me what Phases two and three consist of and whether the Friends School will be funding these.

Or, perhaps it is banking on the community's generosity, as having read their latest accounts I am at a loss to see from where the School will get the funds.
