Pupil loses fight over consultation on future of 300-year-old church school


    The girl, backed by parents, complained that a council consultation on the future of Raine’s Foundation School in Bethnal Green, east London, was a sham and should be halted pending a High Court review.

    She said Tower Hamlets Council had already decided to shut Raine’s.


    Council bosses disputed her claims and said no decision had been made.

    A judge, who was told that Raine’s was one of the oldest schools of its kind in London, ruled in their favour.

    Mr Justice Johnson, who analysed arguments at a High Court hearing in London, blocked the girl’s bid for a judicial review after concluding that she had no chance of winning.

    The girl, a Year 8 pupil at Raine’s, was not named at the hearing or in court papers.

    Lawyers said her mother had instructed lawyers on her behalf.

    - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
