Dear Parent/Carer,


Following the closure of our consultation period which ended on 3rd December 2018, we have received initial approval from the Secretary of State for the closure of Haltwhistle Middle Academy and to extend the age range of Haltwhistle First Academy. Approval was received on 11th March 2019 for practical changes to be made to the Haltwhistle provision with effect from 1st September 2019. 


As part of our commitment to consult with all relevant stakeholders, we would like to draw your attention to the attached booklet which outlines the next stage in the process – a ‘listening period’. This booklet explains the next steps during the re-organisation of provision and to answer any questions that you may have.


We would welcome your feedback on our proposals. 


If you would like to submit any comments please send these to; or send to:

WISE Academies Head Office, Consultations, Borodin Avenue, Sunderland SR5 4NX.


The closing date for these comments to be received is Friday 17th May 2019.


Kind regards

WISE Academies Consultation Team
