Last month we held a series of workshops with parents to consider some ideas the Governing Body have about the future of Priory School. As a result of that feedback and the ideas you have contributed towards our discussions, we are now in a position to move forward with a plan involving a partnership with Bohunt School in Liphook, Hampshire. Bohunt is an outstanding school that can potentially support us as we continue to improve and become outstanding ourselves.
The plan is that we would become a partner with Bohunt School as an Academy under their Academy Trust.
The plan at the moment is under discussion, both here at Priory and at Bohunt. No decision has yet been taken and both schools are still in a position to shape the partnership we might form, or to say ‘no’ to it. The Governing Body, having listened to parents, has set out a series of requirements which any potential partner should be aiming to address before any agreement is reached.
We would welcome your views before a final agreement is made, towards the end of January 2014. Once we have reached an agreement with the Bohunt Trust, we will continue to work with you to help shape the future of the partnership.
These are the opportunities you have to find out more and to tell us if you agree with the proposal for Priory School to become an Academy as part of the Bohunt Academy Trust:
• Please read the Priory School Partnership Requirements Information
• Click on here to register your view
• Attend the ‘Meet Bohunt’ event on 23 January 2014 at Priory to meet members of the Trust and chat about the plan (details of specific timings will be sent out later)
• Write to Priory or email email@example.com
The consultation will close at noon on Friday 24 January when Governors will meet to consider your views.
