We the undersigned believe that too many young people in Bath are being failed by the education system.
The proposed closure of The Bath Studio School and the recent closure of Bath Community Academy (formerly Culverhay School) mean that there is shortage of secondary school places in the south of Bath.
Parents will now face an even more significant challenge in getting their children into local schools. Growing numbers of young people are being forced to travel across to St Mark’s on the other side of the city.
We need an education system to fit in with local children’s needs and serve our community. We are calling for a secondary school to open on the Culverhay site as soon as physically possible, to serve families in Twerton, Whiteway, Southdown, Odd Down and Moorlands.
This petition will be delivered to the Regional Schools Commissioner.
