Parents are being asked to have their say on proposals to completely transform the secondary education system in Lutterworth.
The move would see Lutterworth High School take children from the age of 11 through to their GCSEs at 16.
Under the current system pupils attend the High School from the ages of 11 to 14 before moving on to Lutterworth College. The proposals would also see the college take children from ages 11 through to 19.
The opening of the Sir Frank Whittle Studio School next September will also see Year 9 pupils given additional choice over where to complete their secondary education
Sponsored by the College, the new school will allow students to specialise in engineering, retail and logistics and hospitality and leisure between the ages of 14 and 19.
Admission numbers at Lutterworth High each year would be 150, with 240 at Lutterworth College and 75 at the studio school.
The High School and College have this week launched a joint consultation on the re-organisation, which would be put in place for September 2015 if agreed.
A public meeting to discuss the proposal is being held at the College, in Bitteswell Road, this Wednesday, with a second at the High School on Saturday, September 21.
A joint statement signed by College executive principal Andrew Cooper and High School headteacher Nora Parker said: “Both schools are committed to working together in partnership to ensure that whatever changes are introduced will enhance and enrich the students’ learning experience and continue to build on the very good education both schools currently provide.”
The schools have stressed that no decision will be made until parents’ views are heard. The outcome of the consultation will be presented to Governors.
