Getting sorted

We're in the process of getting sorted....ably assisted by Improve Ed - we have a project plan and the steps of a grand design for setting up the Trust and sorting the arrangements for the new school.  Tomorrow we have a shadow board meeting and on Thursday a due diligence meeting around HR issues.  Cowes High School will close on 31 August 2011 and a new school/learning campus will start from 1 September 2011 with a wider age range of young people incorporating the reorganisation of middle schools.  Then there'll be the rebuilding of the school itself - a novel innovative design incorporating the best in sustainability, community access and technology.  A truly 21st century learning experience.  The strapline for the Trust is shaping up.....Learning for Tomorrow, Today.....what do you think?

The Race is Hotting up....

On 30 September 2009, the Isle of Wight Council will take a decision on the future of Cowes High School.  Cowes Pathfinder Partnership have submitted a bid to run the school as a Trust School.  CPP's vision for the school is to create an exemplar of best practice which reaches out to the local community and brings national and international expertise to ensure that standards are raised and that the young people of Cowes have the skills, knowledge and expertise to equip them for the jobs of the 21st century.

CPP welcome your views and your support for this exciting opportunity to make a real difference to the future.
