A school in Norfolk has been awarded a ‘high-school diploma’ from an independent academic organisation which it had to leave because it did not adhere to its own curriculum.
The High School for Science and Technology (HSST) is based in Newbury, and is part of a network of five schools which are part of the HSL Foundation, which was set up in 2007 to improve education in the region.
However, the organisation was unable to meet its standards and was forced to leave the network.
The HSST had already been in the system for three years when the organisation’s chair, Peter Wilson, was forced out.
The HSL foundation is funded by the government, but the school had not been subject to its requirements and had not made a complaint to the local authority.
In the UK, the HSST is only accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), which sets standards for the schools it runs.
But Mr Wilson had a different view.
“It’s really a case of the HSCT [High School for Education] not being able to meet the standards,” he said.
Mr Wilson said the organisation had not applied for an HSL certificate but he hoped the decision would be overturned. “
So it’s the HST that is responsible for that, and that’s why we are being so adamant that the system needs to be improved.”
Mr Wilson said the organisation had not applied for an HSL certificate but he hoped the decision would be overturned.
“We have had a lot of pressure from the community and we’ve received a lot more than we expected, but I feel that we are really doing the right thing,” he added.
“In the meantime, we’ve been trying to make the case for this school and our graduates, and I hope that this decision will help us do that.” “
The HSCT had already had a contract for three and a half years with the university before it was forced into voluntary administration. “

The decision has angered the HSS Foundation, whose board has been considering whether to seek legal action.
A spokesman for the foundation said it would “fully cooperate” with any inquiry into the case.
“This is an incredibly frustrating situation and I know that many of the parents and staff at the HSHT are disappointed with this decision,” he told the BBC.
A spokesman from the Education and Skills Department said: “The Department is aware of the issue raised by the HS School for Arts and Science and is aware that the HS school is in the process of being terminated. “
The HSL is proud of its role in improving education for the children of Norfolk, and we hope that the HSC will see this as a matter of priority as it seeks to reform the system in Norfolk.”
A spokesperson for the HSE said: ‘We would urge parents and school staff to be patient and consider the school’s needs. “
Any school with more than one pupil will be referred to the Education Agency for further action and we will provide them with all information as it becomes available.”
A spokesperson for the HSE said: ‘We would urge parents and school staff to be patient and consider the school’s needs.
‘It is important to remember that the schools are run by a separate body, the HSP, and are governed by a very different system.’
‘This will not affect the work that the department does, or the support we provide to schools.
‘Schools are run according to a strict set of rules that have been set out in legislation and guidelines.’
The HSS has previously said that the reason for the termination was because it was unable “to meet its requirements”.
It said that it had “no choice” but to remove the school, but had decided that it was not “fit for purpose”.
It added: “There are currently two schools in the network, but because we are now independent, the High School will be transferred to the HS.”
The HST is part-funded by the Government and is not subject to the HSCP.
“The High school’s parent association, the School of Life and the Future, described the move as “unfortunate” and said it was disappointed with the outcome.
Mr Wilson’s wife said the HSD was “shocked” by the decision.
“They were really shocked.” “
I feel that the parent and staff were being told that we didn’t have a place at their school, and they felt that they had to make a change,” he explained.
“They were really shocked.”
The HST had previously said: It is not unusual for parents to ask their children to take on special needs, special needs children,
