Dear Parents/ Carers,
It is with great pleasure that I can announce that The Corsham School has today (April 1st 2011) been granted academy status. The following letter was received from Michael Gove yesterday.
Apart from the financial benefits, the freedoms and possibilities given to academies will ensure that our school further enhances its position in the forefront of the British education system. I would like to thank Mrs Chapman-Richardson, the school’s Business Manager, and Nick Davies, the Chair of the school’s governing body, for their tireless efforts that were needed in order to meet the April 1st conversion deadline. I would also like to thank everyone who gave such support to the school during the consultation period.
