During the listening period, which ended on 5 July 2018, the Trust received only one response to the proposed closure of the Studio School. The response raised the writer’s general concerns about education, the viability of the studio school initiative and the inevitability of the closure of Rye Studio School. The decision to close the Rye Studio School will be considered by Trustees at a meeting on 18 July 2018 and their decision will be communicated thereafter.
