The Closure of Create Studio School
I am writing to confirm that, regrettably, the Wakefield City Academy Trust (WCAT) has made the decision to close Create Studio School on 31 August 2015.
This decision has not been taken lightly. The wellbeing and success of the students at the school is the most important thing and our number one priority at this stage is to support every child to find suitable alternative education provision.
Create students will have the opportunity to transfer to alternative education pathways on offer by Goole High School Academy to complete their studies. I can assure you that WCAT is committed to continue working with all external agencies and the Academy to ensure that throughout this period of transition students will experience minimal disruption.
Unfortunately some courses currently offered at Create Studio School will not be available at Goole High School Academy, however other local providers have been sourced and clear advice on the options available will be discussed in more detail with the students affected and their parents.
We will, of course, keep you fully informed of developments as they arise.
