Consultation on our Proposal to Extend the Age Range of Henlow Church of England Academy to a Single Phase Extended Secondary Provision for 2020-2021

Consultation Report
Below is the report from the Governing Body at Henlow CE Academy following the recent consultation.
If you have any questions, please email



On May 7th 2019 we will begin the consultation process necessary to gather views relating to Henlow Academy's proposal to become a secondary school. It is our intention to seek views on the proposal for our current year 7 pupils to remain at Henlow CE Academy to continue their education in years 9, 10 and 11. All other year groups will then follow in the same way, taking their GCSEs and completing their Key Stage 4 education at Henlow CE Academy.


As the area moves towards a new structure it is inevitable that flexibility will be required and we will support this process by accepting cohorts into years 5 and 6 until primary schools are ready to accept all of the pupils in our locality.


We are excited by the possibility of extending our approach across the secondary age range, preparing pupils effectively for their future lives through our values and Christian ethos and focusing on the development of fully rounded individuals at key stages 3 and 4.


We will become the only secondary Church of England school in the area and have the full support of the Diocese of St Albans in preparing for this extension of age range.


We very much hope that you will also support our endeavours.
