Pre-publication Consultation on the proposed closure of St. Andrew’s CofE High School

Why are we doing this?

St. Andrew's Church of England High School is a voluntary aided mainstream school for children aged 11 to 16 and is part of the educational provision of the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education and the London Borough of Croydon. The school is located at Warrington Road in Croydon.

St. Andrew's Governing Board, in consultation with Croydon Council and the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education have agreed to commence the stautory process for proposed closure of the school in August 2020.

In line with the Department for Education’s (DFE) guidance Opening and Closing Maintained Schools (2018), the council will now conduct a pre-publication consultation. The Council may proceed to a formal consultation.. After fomal consultation, a decision will be made by the Council with regards to closure.

 

What do we want to know?

We want to gather views and engage with those that will be directly affected by the proposed closure of St. Andrew’s Church of England High School. It is also an opportunity for interested parties to suggest options for consideration on the proposed closure in August 2020.

Please read the consultation document below before you complete the online questionnaire.

Should you require the consultation document and questionnaire in any other format or language, please contact the council at:

Following the six week pre-publication consultation period, an outcomes report will be written and submitted to the Executive Director for Children, Families and Education and the Cabinet Member for Children, Young People & Learning to consider the consultation outcome and decide whether to proceed to the next stage of consultation.
