Below you will find some of my messages of support that have already been flooding in – thank you to those families who have already responded.


‘The proposal to extend Hartsholme Academy to include years 7, 8 and 9 is a fantastic opportunity for all the children who attend the school and would be a huge relief to the parents knowing that their child’s education could continue at the school. There is no alternative to the standard of education that Hartsholme Academy offers and I would hate to have to take my children away from that when they reach year 7. We really hope that this goes ahead!’


‘We just wanted to say how pleased we are with the proposal . Having two children at the school we are very excited about the possibility of continuing their education in partnership with UTC . I can’t think of a better start to their educational journey through life . We feel very fortunate that our children are being offered this opportunity.’


‘ I welcome this idea and really do hope it goes ahead and gives our kids a much needed other option and would like to say thanks to you and the school for looking into this and everything else you are doing for our kids, I couldn’t be happier with the school and my girls love coming every day.’


Please keep your support/comments and questions flooding in and we will post any responses on this website as soon as possible.


Thank you
