More time for views on Holbeach academy

A CONSULTATION into proposals for an academy in Holbeach has been extended by a week.

Interested parties now have until 5pm on Wednesday to have their say on the plans to close Crowland’s St Guthlac School and The George Farmer Technology and Language College in Holbeach and for them to reopen as an academy.

Lincolnshire County Council say they are giving people more time to look at the University of Lincoln’s separate sponsor consultation document.

A final decision on the academy is expected in July.
