MP Welcomes SCC's Decision on Upper Schools
Wednesday, 27th February 2008.
West Suffolk MP, Richard Spring has expressed his delight at Suffolk County Council's recent decision to support the development of Haverhill's two upper schools.
He said “I am absolutely delighted that the County Council has decided to turn down the creation of a new upper school in Clare as this would have potentially undermined the pupil flow to the two upper schools in Haverhill.
“Both schools have an improving and good academic record, inspired by two outstanding headteachers. This has been a difficult time for everybody concerned in education in the area, but the two upper schools offer an increasingly attractive education for young people.
“I have had many meetings and conversations with the school heads and governors, and with the County Council itself, and I am very pleased that they have come to this decision. It underlines the County Council’s faith in the future of education in Haverhill, and of Haverhill itself, sentiments which I fully support.”
