Academy Consultation

Why we are considering academy status

Hove Park School is considering converting to academy status as the lead school in a Multi Academy Trust. We would not be a sponsored academy and would not be controlled by any external organisation or sponsor.

Why are we proposing this?

We are considering becoming an academy in order to help us allocate more human and physical resources to the education of our students. Academy status would allow us to determine how our entire budget is spent, rather than having some of that spending determined by the Local Authority. We would also be able to take greater control of key decisions affecting the school and its students.

If Hove Park were to become an academy, we would be able to apply directly to the government for funds for a range of projects, ranging from the introduction of numeracy coaches to proposals for specific building work, such as a new Sixth Form Centre. As a local authority school we simply would not be listened to by central government or other funding agencies.
