ANGRY parents gathered outside the school gates in Newbold yesterday waving banners and shouting through a megaphone.

The group were protesting against plans to turn the school into an academy.

Parent Lorna Dunleavy said: “It’s going to weaken local democracy. Parents are concerned. There are so many issues here it’s hard to know where to start.”
