Concern over Academy woe
Coun Anthony Murray is concerned that troubles at Berwick Academy, placed into special measures, could cause future problems for pupils in the Wooler area. Those who live in the Berwick catchment are not entitled to free transport if they elect to go to Alnwick.
However, Coun Murray hopes that there will be improvements at the Academy.
The parish council will write to MP Anne-Marie Trevelyan and the county council to express concerns about the problems at Berwick.
