Schools in Morpeth - click here for full article

In November 2015 the Labour led County Council "consulted" the public about their proposals for relocating schools to the County Hall site. The plans, unsurprisingly, were not well received as four schools, a leisure centre with swimming pool, school sports pitches and car parking were to be crammed into the site. It has now become public knowledge that the Three Rivers Learning Trust, who run KEVI and our two Middle Schools, did not wish move the schools to the County Hall site for educational reasons, so the proposal is dead in the water. Goosehill however, welcomed the proposed new build and, because of Three Rivers' decision, wished to talk with the County Council about further options. It is to be hoped that the County Council will realise that it is important to consider and prepare options in close partnership with the people involved in Education in the town, and not withdraw their support for schools because their first proposal was unacceptable.
