  • Houghton Regis Academy Update

    Published 15/07/20

    As part of the closure transition plan, the Academy was scheduled to move into the adjacent former UTC building in September 2020.  Unfortunately, due to the issues that Covid-19 have presented us with, we have been unable to visit the UTC and prepare the building to be equipped for the Academy opening in September; therefore we will continue within our current setting. We will, of course, update everyone on the plans to move to the UTC as soon as we have any information to share. Please find below a copy of the letter that has been sent out to parents.

  • Houghton Regis Academy – Closure Approved

    Published 04/06/20

    The Secretary of State for Education, in mutual agreement with Greenwood Academies Trust (GAT), has now given final approval for the closure transition plan of Houghton Regis Academy. This follows the substantive and final decision taken in February to proceed to closure of the Academy. From September 2020, the Academy will become a Key Stage 3 only provision until closure.

    In order to minimise the impact of the closure on pupils, parents, staff and the community, and to ensure that any pupils at the Academy, up to closure, have access to a good quality education, the approved closure transition plan will now come into effect. This means the Academy will remain open for some year groups until 31 August 2022, when a new secondary school is due to open in the area. The Trust has also been working closely with Central Bedfordshire Council to secure high-quality school places in the locality for all current year 9 and year 10 pupils to ensure they will receive the best possible education in a fully and appropriately staffed school. Offers will be sent out shortly to these parents.
