Back in 2012, there was a proposal to change the school’s name. This was addressed within the context of the possibility of the school becoming an academy. However, pursuit of possible academy status was discontinued and further discussion of a name change ceased. The time is right for us to revisit this issue. For the first time in the 60 year history of the school, following seven years of sustained improvement, standards are above national averages.
