I am pleased to inform you that the legal process to convert to an academy, part of the Redhill Academy Trust, is almost complete. After some delays due to complicated land issues, our conversion date is likely to be 1 July 2017. From that date forward we will be known as Colonel Frank Seely Academy. Telephone numbers will remain the same, but there will be a change to both our email addresses and the school website. Details are shown at the bottom of this letter.
You will have already received my letter regarding changes to the pastoral systems from September 2017, with the introduction of vertical tutoring. There will be other ‘back office’ changes to systems and procedures that you may not notice but are nonetheless vital to the academy transition. To enable this to be as smooth as possible staff will need to undertake further training.
We will therefore need to hold an additional Inset Day on Monday 3 July 2017, when school will be closed to pupils.
Many thanks for your continued support.
MR J GALE
