Governors of Lutterworth High School and Lutterworth College recently met to consider the results of the consultation that took place in September.

The major change set down in the proposal is that from September 2015, Lutterworth High School will become an 11-16 (Year 7-11) school and Lutterworth College will become an 11-19 (Year 7-13) school.

Both Governing Bodies have voted in favour of proceeding with the proposal confident that these changes will benefit the young people of Lutterworth and surrounding areas.

Along with The Sir Frank Whittle Studio, young people and their parents will have greater choice when making decisions about their secondary education. This view was supported by many of those (70%) who completed the consultation questionnaire.

The next stage in the process – to begin in January 2014 - is consultation on the Admission criteria for both schools.

In a joint statement, Andrew Cooper, Executive Principal of Lutterworth College and Nora Parker, Headteacher of Lutterworth High School commented:
“We will continue to work in partnership with each other whilst at the same time maintaining the core values which reflect the distinctive culture and ethos of each school. We will also continue to operate closely with our family of schools and with Brockington College in order to ensure that any collaboration is positive and productive.”
