THE CHICHESTER high schools have asked for people’s opinions on them merging together to form a single school.

News broke recently of proposals for Chichester High School for Boys and Chichester High School for Girls to join forces to form a single school.

The academies are both run by The Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT), which is one of the largest multi-academy trusts in the south of England with more than 40 primary and secondary academies.

The chairmen of governors at both schools Amanda Godfrey and Peter Walters released a statement.

“We are looking forward to receiving responses about our proposals for the future of the schools,” they said.

“We envisage the merged school being at the heart of the community in Chichester and therefore welcome responses from any interested parties.”

The consultation runs from now until 5pm on January 16, 2015.

To respond to the survey, visit www.research.net/s/chichesterhighschools, or the schools’ websites www.chsg-tkat.org and www.chsb.org.uk.

Alternatively, pick up a hard copy from the schools’ receptions.

There is also a public meeting on Tuesday, November 18, 2014, from 6pm-7pm at the girls’ school and Tuesday, January 13, 2015, at the boys school.

There are also specific meetings for parents, details of which are available from the schools.

A consultation leaflet has also been published with more details on the proposals.
