Dear Parent or Carer,
Re: Post 16 – 19 provision at Greenwood Academy
In response to significant parent and student demand for high quality Post 16 provision in Castle Vale, The Academies Enterprise Trust and members of the Greenwood Academy Management Board are opening a period of formal consultation on the proposal to open a 200 place 6th Form at the academy.
The Academies Enterprise Trust and members of the Greenwood Academy Management Board are opening a period of formal consultation on the proposal to open a sixth form at the Academy.
The consultation will focus on two strands of the sixth form proposal:
Strand One: Change of Age Range
To develop a sixth form provision at Greenwood Academy, proposed to open in September 2014 and to admit internal students only for the first year of operation.
Strand Two: Change of Admissions
To extend the proposed sixth form provision at Greenwood Academy to admit both internal and external students by September 2015.
In light of the above, it has been decided that there should be a period on consultation which will run from Monday 4 December 2013 to Wednesday 12 February 2014. The consultation will involve Parents, Students, Local Government Officials and other interested stakeholders. A public meeting will be held on Wednesday 4th December at 6.00pm in the Academy’s Main Hall. A copy of the Post 16 Consultation document can be downloaded from the Greenwood Academy website at www.greenwoodacademy.org or will be available at Greenwood Academy reception.
In summary we believe that the provision of a sixth form would offer our students the following educational benefits:
We welcome any views regarding this proposal by the deadline date of 13th January 2014. If you wish to make additional comment on the proposal, a copy of the response form can be downloaded from the Academy website or will be available at Greenwood Academy reception.
Completed response forms should be sent to:
