Birmingham Kajans school to close after one year

A £2.5m school in Birmingham is to close just 12 months after it opened, because of a lack of students.

The Department for Education served the closure notice because, by April, fewer than 75 people had registered to study at the Kajans Hospitality & Catering Studio College from September.

The school's new principal Dr Kevin Hylands said registration numbers had now risen and wanted the decision reviewed.

Cath Mackie from BBC Midlands Today reports.
