Pupils at the Harrington-Bridge learning academy are still yet to receive GCSE and AS level results and a parent-teacher group has today initiated legal proceedings against the academy.
The flagship secondary school, set up as a joint venture by Harrington Education Trust and Bridge Pharmecutical Industries have cited professional confidentiality as the reason for witholding this years results. Chief Learning and Development Architect Toby Gilligan explained that "The 2009/10 results set for our year 11 and 13 pupils could, if released into the public domain, damage our joint ventures profits and risk future income streams. We have a primary obligation to our shareholders to write this school year off as bad debt before regrouping and growing the business next term.
PTA spokesman Vanessa Smalls has mixed feeling about the news; "My eldest should have found out her grades for 10 GCSEs and it's political correctness gone mad that she will possible never discover just how bright, or dim, she actually is. Having said that I also have two boys in years 9 and 10 and if this years results were as poor as expected then the lack of funding and lower intake into the academy would have effected their chances, worst case the school could have closed."
Education Minister Michael Gove has said that he is "staying the fuck out of this one." and advised the academy and parents to "sort their own shit out".
