Student Consultation - Proposals for a school system in the Coquet Partnership

Closed 29 Jun 2022

Opened 11 May 2022


Northumberland County Council has agreed to spend £25.5 million to refurbish school buildings in the Coquet Partnership to make them more suitable for pupils in which to learn. 

£25.5 million is a lot of money and the Council wants to be sure that it spends the money on schools that will help children and young people in the Coquet area to learn and achieve to the best of their ability, now and in the future.    

Over the last few months, Council officers have been talking to the headteachers and Chair of Governors at all of the schools that make up the Coquet Partnership (see later in this document) to ask them about the current system of schools.  All the headteachers and Chairs of Governors agreed that it is now the right time to ask you (as a student in JCSC), your parents and carers, your teachers and the local community what they think about education and schools.   

In this document, we have set out the reasons why this consultation is taking place.  Your views will be read by the Councillors who will make the decision on whether or not to change the schools, so I hope that you will find some time to read this document and then respond to the questions.  I’m really looking forward to hearing your views.
