A plea has been made by Save Walmer Science College campaigners for people to take advantage of the final opportunity to comment on the plans to shut the school in August.
It came at a public meeting on Tuesday at Deal Town Hall, organised by Save WSC in the final week of its fight to halt the proposed closure.
About 70 people attended including Deal MP Charlie Elphicke, councillors, parents and pupils, one in tears.
Campaigner Gillian Chiverton said urged people who cared about the education of the children of Deal and Walmer to write immediately to the county council to express their concerns.
Andy Roberts opened the meeting and explained that its purpose was to increase the response from local people before the end of the consultation period on Thursday, February 28.
Letters can be written to Marisa White, Area Education Officer, East Kent Education Office, Clover House, John Wilson Business Park, Thanet Way, Whitstable, Kent CT5 3QZ, to arrive by 5pm on Thursday, February 28.
The district council has a scrutiny meeting looking into education across the district. It starts at 6pm on Wednesday at the Landmark Centre, Deal.
