CLASS sizes could rocket by up to a fifth as the funding crisis across schools in Suffolk bites.
Headteachers' representative Martin Liddle today revealed cuts were being made across the county – because Suffolk schools are becoming a victim of their own success.
The headmaster of Ipswich's Stoke High said he was determined to seek meetings with government representatives to ensure Suffolk got a fairer slice of the funding cake.
If the county was snubbed for cash, he said staples of a child's education such as music tuition and foreign language classes could suffer.

"We are a very successful county. If we were unsuccessful there would be increased funds available," said Mr Liddle.
"Because we are successful we are being asked to continue to do more and more with less and less."
