The cost of paying for a PFI deal on a Doncaster school may be hindering efforts to find a trust to run it, fears a chairman of the governors.
Sean Gibbons, co-chairman of governors at Mexborough Academy, is concerned the cost of paying the Private Finance Initiative costs is putting off potential sponsors who could take over the school, after it was dropped by its previous trust, Wakefield City Academies Trust.
It has been linked with the Delta Academies Trust, which is already taking over Montagu Primary School in Mexborough.
Mr Gibbons said: “I feel there is a need to sort things out with the Department for Education and Delta properly and quickly.
It is not fair on the students and staff are having to be put through this uncertainty, especially as a deal has already been done at Montagu.
