What’s this to do with?
Well basically, it relates to the recent news that the Voyager Academy has been taken over by the Thomas Deacon Academy Education Trust.
The academy had been run by the Cam Academy Trust.
You may remember that the school had previously been placed in to special measures?
It is currently rated as ‘Requires Improvement’ by Ofsted.
My thoughts are ……
Back in 2003, Liberal Democrat and Liberal Councillors, publicly opposed the Tory plans which included closing down local schools and amalgamating Bretton Woods with Walton Comprehensive.
I have serious doubts about the practicality of a school serving both Bretton and Walton – they may appear close on the map, but that it illusory. – Cllr Spencer (2003)
The real shame of course here, is all the pupils over recent years, living in the areas of Walton, Gunthorpe, Werrington etc who have not received the support they deserved.
A bad decision by the ruling Tory elite at the Town Hall has sadly come back to bite them on the rear, and given students a knock back as they try to develop their own career.
As always I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions, so please do feel free to post a comment below!
