The Independent has published a letter from the heads of London's 12 sixth form colleges.
The letter outlines the cuts faced by the colleges and then says: '..it is entirely unjust that £45m has been found to establish an institution that will educate less than a fifth of the number of students currently enrolled at some of the existing sixth form colleges in London.'
One of the signatories is, Ken Warman, Principal of BSix Brooke House Sixth Form College in Clapton.
