Reasons for signing

  • I find it hard to understand how a school charging fees on the scale that Ockbrook does can’t find a way to be viable. There’s something strange going on beneath the surface here. If the school must close, it should be done in a more controlled way, perhaps staying open for those part way through exam courses, with a skeleton staff.
  • I have signed because Ockbrook is a special place full of love, history and creativity. It is not just a place of education, but a place of memories and has provided a safe space for children to grow into young adults - especially when things might not have been great at home. 💔😢
  • Having studied at Ockbrook, the quality of the fundraising for charity and other social issues was very high and a regular occurrence over my time there. Saving our school is as valiant a cause as any other, if not, more. Give your students, parents, staff and members of the public a chance to utilise there experiences with this and to save their school because it’s not too late. We still have the capabilities and dedication to keep Ockbrook School going!
