11Points to noteThis is a development for SFX on its own – school will continue as Catholic institution with boys provision (11-16) and mixed sixth form as now. School will continue as an Academy under trusteeship of De la Mennais Brothers.It will not involve any amalgamation with another school and there will be no change to pupil intake arrangements.Sixth form arrangements in terms of student access to courses at 6th forms in other schools will continue just as now.
12What happens next?Leadership Team and governors are working closely with the council, construction company and the design team. Staff and student involvement in design processPlanning arrangements being dealt with by LCC & Kier – public consultation meeting later in January organised by LCC & KierLogistical arrangements being planned so that pupil education is not disrupted (we are experienced in this given developments which have taken place in the past)We will keep you informed of developments via website and newsletters
13FinallyThis represents a huge opportunity for the College and its pupils (present and future)We are being able to maintain our identity, preserve the best of the “old school” and have brand new facilities where neededWe are extremely grateful to the Mayor and LCC for their hard work in putting the Liverpool Schools Investment Programme into place and are very appreciative of our inclusion within the programme
