Schools ordered to become academies set to close because no one will sponsor them
Church academy trust says it is not able to take on two church schools that were issued with directive academy orders
Two primary schools that were ordered by the Department for Education to become academies are set to close because no academy trust would take them on.
Surrey County Council this week launched public consultations on plans to shut Green Oak C of E Primary in Godalming and Ripley C of E Primary, Ripley.
Under the 2016 Education and Adoption Act, all “inadequate” maintained schools must be turned into academies. The government issued directive academy orders for both schools.
