Blackpool Council
United Kingdom

Parents are being given the option to save the government from spending £10m needlessly on a new school with inferior facilities.

A public consultation has begun on proposals to merge Bispham and Collegiate High Schools, creating one sponsored academy.

The council bosses have said that if the merger is backed, there will be a choice between the existing Bispham buildings or a new multi-million pound building at the Collegiate site (a modular building which is only set to place 900 pupils). If the new building was given the go ahead, the existing performing arts facilities, affiliations to The Royal Ballet and the only performing arts college in Blackpool will be lost.

Bispham High School is part of the community and would decimate the area and local businesses if it was to close. The amount of children and teachers at Bispham High School add to the economy.

The undersigned call on the Blackpool Council to keep Bispham High School open instead of a new £10m waste of money.
