Holywells High School threatened by C of E take-over
A BITTER tug-of- war has broken out today [17 October 2008] over the future of one of Ipswich’s most high-profile schools.
Despite improving GCSE rates and opposition from staff, Holywells High School could become a church-sponsored academy.
Although no final decision has been made and a full consultation is yet to take place, sources at multicultural Holywells High have hit out at a proposal to convert the school into an academy, saying they have been put under pressure by Suffolk County Council to become a faith school.
We will do whatever we can to support those who oppose the take-over of Holywells School by the Church. If you have any information, please get in touch.
