ASSURANCES have been made that no compulsory redundancies will take place this year among teaching staff at St Neots Community College.
But some non-teaching posts are still thought to be at risk.
With debts of about �800,000 and a reduction in Year 7 intake, it had been feared that compulsory redundancies would take place at the school.
Angered by the prospect of losing their favourite teachers, hundreds of pupils at the school launched a petition to save them from redundancy.
The Hunts Post reported last week that up to five teaching jobs were on the line at the college, which has been placed in special measure by Ofsted.
However, this week a spokesman for the college said the necessary redundancies would be filled voluntarily.
