Consultation on the proposal to change Brantridge School to Co-educational provision

The school wishes to move to Co-educational provision. The rationale for this change is to meet local need by providing high quality specialist education for children and young people of both sexes with a diagnosis of social, emotional and mental health needs or Autism Spectrum Condition. The need for local provision to be extended to girls as well as boys has been identified by West Sussex County Council.

A formal consultation, to seek feedback on the above change, will take place for a minimum of 6 term-time weeks between Monday 21st January 2019 and Friday 8th March 2019.

Your views on any aspect of the proposal will be sent to our Local Governing Body and the OHCAT board of Trustees for consideration. All responses received by the end of the consultation period will be carefully considered and approval sought from the Regional Schools Commissioner to decide the admission arrangements for the school year 2020/2021.

We therefore invite you to take part in this consultation on the proposal to move towards Co-educational provision at Brantridge School. Comments may be submitted in the following ways:
