Consultation on proposed changes to age-ranges, structure and admissions - Wednesday 8 November 2015 - Friday 8th January 2016



Our last update on the structure of the Sharnbrook Academy Federation’s schools was in September 2015. Since then we have been working closely with Bedford Borough and the lower schools in our area.

We are publishing our Consultation documents on Wednesday 11 November 2015 which can be accessed via the following link - http://www.sharnbrook.beds.sch.uk/saf-governance/13589.html. 

The consultations will run until 12 noon on 8 January 2016.

Our proposals are as follows:

  •  That Harrold Priory Middle School ceases to be a Middle school and expands its age range, becoming a Primary
     School offering provision from age 4 (Year R) to age 11 (Year 6) from 2017
     
  •  That Lincroft School should change its age range by three years and offer education from Year 7 (age 11) to Year 1 (age 16) from 2017, with year groups building incrementally; and become known as Lincroft Academy
     
  •  That Margaret Beaufort Middle School also ceases to be a Middle school and expands its age range, becoming
     a Primary School offering provision from age 4 (Year R) to age 11 (Year 6) from 2017
     
  •  That Sharnbrook Upper School change its age range offering provision from age 11 (Year 7) to age 18/19 (Year 13) becoming known as Sharnbrook Academy from 2017
