Park School goes into administration

It is only a couple of years since The Park School took over the former school buildings of Chilton Cantello School. Yet no doubt hurried on by the chaos, to say nothing of loss of income, incidental to the COVID 19 pandemic, the school has entered administration.

Trying to keep a fee paying school going with a three month closure, doubts over how and when pupils can come back must have been tough.

It would not be a surprise to see other fee paying schools in the area struggling too.

It is a shame that a school founded in 1957 that has survived several highs and lows over the years should have finally succumbed. The last published accounts for the Park School (Yeovil) Limited showed expenditure £74,224 higher than income, but at the time it still had nearly £900,000 in reserves.

Of course a lot can happen in a year.

Companies House documents filed on 7th May confirm that administrators from Grant Thornton have been appointed.
