All of us within The GORSE Academies Trust are delighted that the Secretary of State gave his approval for the school’s conversion to academy status as a part of TGAT for September 2018. The journey to that conversion has been protracted and unnecessarily difficult. We were shocked when the local authority threatened to close the school in a meeting with us in January 2018.
Our priority now is the futureOur priority now is the future and we are confident that Boston Spa Academy will continue to push forward in its determination to become an exceptional school. Our results in 2019 are exceptionally pleasing and suggest that, as a part of the GORSE family, Boston Spa Academy will very quickly become a powerful school with a formidable reputation.
We continue to invest heavily in the capitol development programme of the school. Phase 1, which was completed in the Summer of 2019, focused on the transformation of Post-16 education. Phase 2, which will be completed for the Summer of 2020, will see the transformation of social areas, catering facilities and toilets. Our final phase in 2021 will establish a new and exciting centre for performing arts which we know will be of great importance in our community.
