Consultation on the proposal to amalgamate Seaton Sluice and Whytrig Middle Schools

Closed 1 Dec 2021

Opened 13 Oct 2021


The Governing Body of the Seaton Valley Federation has asked Northumberland County Council to consult on a proposal to amalgamate Seaton Sluice and Whytrig Middle Schools on one site, together with Astley High School.  We would like to hear your views on this proposal. 

This consultation document sets out the reasons why the Governing Body believes this proposal would bring significant benefits to students.  As a parent/carer, member of staff or a member of the community, you may feel you will want to understand what these proposals mean for young people, yourself and your community and therefore this consultation offers you the opportunity to have your say and to submit your views for consideration by the Council before any decisions on whether or not to make the changes are made. 

Therefore, I hope that you will take this opportunity to respond to the consultation and I look forward to reading your comments.
