Academy plan gets county council backing

PLANS to transform a school in Eastbourne moved another step forward today after county education officials rubberstamped plans for ETC to be replaced with an Academy.

East Sussex County Council, in partnership with Sussex Downs College, agreed outline plans for an Academy at the Brodrick Road school at a meeting on Tuesday morning.

The green light means the Academy would be on the current ETC site, would be the same size as the existing school, and bound by all the same admissions and Special Educational Needs policies. Work is likely to start in 2010.
