Flegg High School pupil’s last day celebrations cancelled
PUPILS leaving Flegg High school have been told that their last day ahead of their GCSEs this summer has been cancelled.
An estimated 120 students in year 11 at the Martham school expecting to say their farewells today were told in a meeting at 2.30pm yesterday that their leaving day had been axed.
Tina Alcock was shocked by the news after her daughter Natalie called her following the announcement.
She said: 'She wasn't very happy with the news when she rang and to be honest I couldn't believe it when I heard.
'I think it's disgusting really- the kids have lost out on their last day.'
