As pupils at St Bees School, in West Cumbria, leave today, they know that the doors could be closing for good.

The school's governors announced it would be closing earlier on this year, because of falling pupil numbers.

A project team has been set up to analyse the options, and they say the school could re-open in 2017.

I'm completely devastated. It's been a really hard morning."
