The Cass sells Aldgate home


It is London Metropolitan University that has sold the Cass's Central House, and it is they that also sold the Cass's other building further along Commercial Road including the industrial quality workshops that are so crucial to the teaching of practical design and making. A move to temporary accommodation in Aldgate is being rushed through, too fast to stand a chance of being satisfactory. The spokesman you quote is from London Metropolitan University, not The Cass. London Metropolitan University have no clear plans in place for new accommodation in Holloway, nor is there any certainty about the future of courses at the Cass. London Metropolitan's inexplicable and clumsy announcement that the musical instrument making, jewellery and silversmithing course are to be closed, do not bode well. The departure of Cass Dean, Robert Mull, was not the result of a protest resignation. He was brutally removed by the heavy handed host university, regardless of his crucial leadership role and the unanimous support he enjoyed from the whole Cass community.
