College announces move towards Academy Status

The College has now received notification from the Secretary of State for Education that our application to convert to an Academy has been accepted with effect from 1 September 2010, subject to Parliamentary approval and Royal Assent of the Academies Bill.  This is excellent news for the College and will bring with it greater freedom in many areas, and more importantly, additional funding streams.  The College can, therefore, confirm that should the Academies Bill be successful and there are not any unforeseen complications, the College will become an Academy with effect from 1 September 2010, however, students, staff and parents will experience little change. Please refer to the ‘Letters Home’ page under ‘School Information’ for further information on this initiative.
