Listening period begins ahead of closure
The Secretary of State for Education, in mutual agreement with the Trust, has now made the substantive and final decision to proceed to closure of Houghton Regis Academy. However, in order to reduce the impact of the closure, we have agreed a proposed closure transition plan which means the Academy will remain open for some year groups until 31 August 2022.
We will now conduct a ‘listening period’. The listening period is an opportunity for stakeholders and interested parties such as pupils, parents and staff to be provided with more information about the proposed closure process. It is also an opportunity for you to submit your views on how the process can best be managed. This will start on 28th February and end at 5pm on 27th March 2020.
On Tuesday, 10 March at 6pm there will also be a public meeting at the academy, which all interested parties can attend. The aim of the session is to allow stakeholders the opportunity to give their views on the proposed closure transition plan.
