Margate School For Deaf Children May Close

The country's oldest specialist school for deaf children could close at the end of the year after the trust which runs it went into administration.
More than 100 job losses have already been announced at The Royal School for Deaf Children in Margate, Kent, which was established in 1792.
A further 380 jobs could go if substantial funding cannot be found.
About 110 young people attend the schools operated by the John Townsend Trust, administrators said.
The threat of closure also affects Westgate College which was established in 1978 as the post-16 department of The Royal School.
The oldest school for deaf children in the country could close at the end of the year with the loss of more than 500 jobs.
