I have read your comments with interest and we have had as many positive as negative responses to the question of Academy status for the school, not dissimiliar to this thread.
The Trustees met last Monday evening and had a long and interesting exchange of views. Some issues are being handled by our legal team and further clarification is required. We informed the school of the result and both them and the local press were informed that we would write explaining our reasoning. The press were also informed that we would not agree to a press release until the school had been informed. Sadly, the school decided otherwise but I understand their reasons for doing so.
Our response will be published in due course, probably next week, as this is the only way we can contact all those involved and it is important that this is shared.
