11-16 Consultation Update

As you will be aware, the consultation process around a potential change in age range status at Brockington College ended recently.

On Monday 29 April 2013, the governors of the college met to discuss the outcome of the consultation, which was reported to them.  I can now share with you that over 76% of all responses were in favour of the college converting to an 11-16 school.  Of those that responded positively, 16% felt that 300 in each cohort (1,500 in the school) was the preferred size, 33% felt that 180 in each cohort (900 in the school) was the preferred size and 46% felt that 240 in each cohort (1,200 in the school) was the preferred size.  5% felt that an alternative to all three suggestions would be better.

Following a lengthy discussion about this feedback, governors voted unanimously to pursue a move to 11-16 status for September 2015 and in a second vote, unanimously to seek approval for an admission number of 240 pupils per year group from September 2015.
