  • Full Academy Closure for all students and staff between 23rd March – 27th March.​​​​​​​

    Published 20/03/20

    “The health and wellbeing of our pupils, staff and the wider school community, is our absolute priority.

     “The Government has advised all schools in England to close, except for certain groups of children, in order to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. No date has been set for when schools will re-open for all pupils.

     “We take our duty of care extremely seriously and every decision is made with the best interests of our pupils in mind. As a result of staff shortages, due to more robust self-isolation advice, and the latest government guidelines regarding schools, the Academy will remain closed next week to all students and staff, 23rd March – 27th March.

     “We will continue to be in regular contact with parents and carers and will provide further updates and information as it becomes available.”

  • Listening period begins ahead of closure

    Published 28/02/20

    The Secretary of State for Education, in mutual agreement with the Trust, has now made the substantive and final decision to proceed to closure of Houghton Regis Academy.  However, in order to reduce the impact of the closure, we have agreed a proposed closure transition plan which means the Academy will remain open for some year groups until 31 August 2022. 

    We will now conduct a ‘listening period’. The listening period is an opportunity for stakeholders and interested parties such as pupils, parents and staff to be provided with more information about the proposed closure process. It is also an opportunity for you to submit your views on how the process can best be managed. This will start on 28th February and end at 5pm on 27th March 2020.

    On Tuesday, 10 March at 6pm there will also be a public meeting at the academy, which all interested parties can attend. The aim of the session is to allow stakeholders the opportunity to give their views on the proposed closure transition plan.

    For further information, please find below a letter from the Trust.
