Following much discussion, the Trust has decided to consult on the proposal to close the Sixth Form at Bishop Young Academy with effect from Summer 2019. If agreed, the proposal would mean that no new students would be admitted into Year 12 in September 2019. The proposal would only affect the sixth form and would not mean any changes to the rest of the academy. While the Trust acknowledges that the proposition is regrettable, we believe it is necessary to preserve the future viability of the school. We welcome your views on the proposal and ask you to complete the following questions.
