Clitheroe Road Residents Association. Opposing plans to transform Brierfield Mill (BSN) into a single sex, single faith school.
Members of the Clitheroe Road Residents Association, are asking for your support in opposing plans to transform Brierfield Mill (BSN) into a single sex, single faith school.
You may be aware that a previous interested party, the El Ahya Trust, have now purchased Burnley College, and will be opening a University for 1500 students.
A group called Islamic Help, has now placed a deposit on Brierfield Mill and is proposing a 5,000 student boarding school, of single sex and single faith.
The residents association is made up of members of different cultures, religions, age groups and sex and are opposed to the proposals which we feel will divide the communities and cultures of Brierfield and Pendle.
Pendle residents have been committed to community cohesion for many years, and have managed to avoid the tensions that other areas nearby have seen.
We have also spent millions of pounds schemes such as Building Schools for the Future, which were pioneered to ensure that the future of our communities, the children, grow up and are educated together.
Such a plan for Brierfield Mills, from a company based in Birmingham, will cause deep rooted divisions in our town and Pendle as a whole, which would end all the good work that we have all contributed to over the years.
The wider impact on Brierfield and Pendle's infrastructure (medical care, transport, primary schools, and children’s nurseries) are also a major cause for concern.
We kindly ask you to sign our petition, and hope we can rely on your continued support in ensuring we achieve the best, for ALL communities in Brierfield and Pendle.
