Executive Headteacher: School Closure Update

As promised, I am now in a position to update you about the future of Southfield Technology College and Stainburn School & Science College.

The County Council’s Cabinet met today to make their final decision on the closure of the schools.

In a change to the original proposal, the cabinet has agreed to delay the take-over of the new Academy to 1 September 2015, instead of 1 January 2015. This follows a request from the Interim Executive Boards that oversee the governance of the schools, who felt that it was in the best interests of the students to delay the closure of the schools until the end of the 2014/2015 academic year. I am fully supportive of this decision.
