Some 400 people attended successful public meetings at All Saints RC School and Manor CE Academy last week – and the question and answer sessions have been compiled into a useful guide which now appears on the schools’ websites. Click here to access
Both schools propose enlarging the current All Saints sixth form and associating it with Manor, to provide a distinctive faith based post-16 provision.
A formal consultation period runs until the end of March, where all views will be considered before an application is made to government.
All Saints headteacher, Mr Bill Scriven, said: “All Saints has been a preferred sixth form for Manor students for some years now. With an associated sixth form we feel that we have a fantastic opportunity to combine the expertise of both organisations and take an already first class provision to an even higher level.”
Manor CE Academy principal, Mr Brian Crosby, added: “The opportunity to join forces with All Saints and create a faith based, associated sixth form, jointly governed, is exciting and I hope people will support our proposals.”
The consultation period allows people with an interest in the proposal to submit their views and both schools urge them to take part in the consultation by completing the questionnaire, accessed via both school websites. Contributions can also be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post.
