Kirklees Council's New Proposals

14th July 2011

The BBG Academy Trust is disappointed that the recent Kirklees Council proposals for primary education in Birkenshaw and East Bierley, do not acknowledge the very clear support that more than 2000 parents, families and children across Birkenshaw, Birstall, East Bierley and Gomersal have expressed for our proposed new Academy.  

However, as per our notice on the of 7th June we have permission from the Secretary of State, Rt Hon Michael Gove MP, to open BBG Academy in 2013 and we are continuing to work with local schools, families and communities to deliver our vision: a vision that will see a local school serving its local community and providing outstanding education, experiences and pastoral care for everybody.  We are more determined than ever to turn our plans into a reality.
