School's founder "shares parents' devastation"

The co-founder of the One In A Million charity which had hoped to open its new Free School in Bradford next month says he shares the devastation of the parents who say they have been let down.

As was said on Tuesday we share the devastation of the families and staff involved and totally understand their passion. That is why we have worked tirelessly throughout this whole process, right until the DfE decision was made on Friday.

– Wayne Jacobs, Co-Founder of One in a Million
