Following our Full Governing Body meeting on Thursday 7 July 2011, the school converted to a ‘new style’ academy on 1 August 2011.
The Governing Body agreed unanimously to convert to an academy in order to enable us as a school to continue to maintain the ethos of the school and allow us to continue to provide the best possible experiences, opportunities and staffing for our students over the forthcoming years. The conversion to an academy has given us greater freedom in how we run our school and how we allocate our finances in a time of budget reductions.
Following the Academy Act of 2010, good schools like ourselves, have been given the power to convert as ‘new style’ academies which are free from Local Authority control
