Academy Consultation

Springwell Community College today (Monday 13th November 2017) opens a consultation with stakeholders on a proposal to join ‘The Two Counties Academy Trust’.

The consultation will run until Friday 15th December 2017.  An information evening for current and potential future parents and carers will be held at the college at 6.00pm on Tuesday 28th November.

This is an important development for the college and I would urge stakeholders to read more about the proposal and take part in the consultation.  Below are links to letters for parents of current students and parents of Year 5 and 6 pupils and an initial question and answer document about academies. This document will be updated with responses to further questions which arise following the information evening.

Staff at the college will also be invited to contribute to the consultation.  In addition, I would welcome comments and questions from members of the wider community.

To contribute to the consultation please email your comments to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., stating whether you are a parent, potential future parent, member of staff or member of the community.  If you prefer to respond to the consultation by letter please write Governor Consultation on the envelope.

The consultation will close on Friday 15th December 2017.


Karen Bonnett, Chair of Governors
