The LR president of the region Laurent Wauquiez announced this May 18 in front of the teachers and agents of the establishment to oppose the closure of the Espaly-Saint-Marcel high school in Haute-Loire. However, just a few days ago, it was ready to experience a definitive shutdown in 2027.

It’s a thunderclap ! While the region and the rectorate had decided to close the Espaly-Saint-Marcel high school from the start of the 2027 school year, President LR of the Auvergne region-Rhone-Alpes Laurent Wauquiez came to bring teachers and agents some very good news.

I don’t want Espaly high school to close, it’s true that it’s a high school with small numbers, but in reality, it’s an opportunity.

It is a high school which trains children who sometimes could have difficulties who leave this high school with confidence. Here, we train them in the fields of carpentry, wood and metalwork where the students are subsequently hired immediately. When we see the difficulties today in training children, we must not close a functioning high school” observes the president of the region.

The establishment has nearly 120 students in the building trades each year. Open since 1947, the sectors found in this structure are very attractive.

We remain confident, the war is not won for the moment. We believe it, it would be a disaster for the teams and for the students who would be transferred to a large establishment where they would no longer be able to have the support that we give them here on a daily basis.explains Thomas Exbrayat, education assistant.

Yes, but not completely. The region has control over employees and agents, but the decision on the opening or closing of an educational establishment remains with the rectorate. They have one week to consult and by mutual agreement decide the fate of the Espaly-Saint-Marcel high school.
