This consultation was about the possible closure of Stainburn School & Science College and Southfield Technology College and the establishment of a single secondary school in Workington to replace them. The new secondary school for Workington would be an academy; in accordance with the Education and Inspections Act 2006, section 6A, there is a presumption that any new school will be an academy. 

The Education Act 2011 changed the arrangements for establishing new schools and introduced section 6A (the academy/free school presumption) to the Education and Inspections Act 2006. Where a Local Authority thinks there is a need for a new school in its area it must seek proposals to establish an academy/free school.

Cumbria County Council identified the need for a new school within Workington, dependent on closure being agreed for two of the town's existing secondary schools. The maximum capacity for Southfield Technology College at the time was 987 and the maximum capacity for Stainburn School and Science College was 966.

Cumbria County Council invited interested parties to submit their expression of interest in becoming the academy sponsor of the new school, under the 'Academy Presumption' process.

This proposal was presented as a result of the increasing numbers of children living in Penrith and rising birth rates in the urban area. The local authority was working with the schools in the area to ensure sufficient pupil places were available to meet the increasing demand. Part of the solution required the expansion of St Catherine's Catholic Primary School. We proposed that the number of places in each year group expanded from 15 to 20.

The consultation was about the future of St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Mountain View, Cockermouth, Cumbria CA13 0DG.

The school's governing body, the Diocese of Lancaster and Cumbria County Council had been working very hard to keep the school thriving and successful, but in recent times the number of pupils at the school had fallen to an historically low level, which in turn led to budget and staffing difficulties and had an effect on the offering that the school was able to make.

The County Council and its key partners carried out a comprehensive review of all schools throughout Cumbria. As a consequence of this review, the County Council was seeking to establish resourced provision to meet the needs of deaf/hearing impaired children within a mainstream school setting in Carlisle. The provision that was envisaged for Trinity School was to enable that school to provide for profoundly deaf and severely impaired children in a mainstream setting who would otherwise have had to be educated at specialist schools outside the Authority.

The County Council and its key partners carried out a comprehensive review of all the schools throughout Cumbria. As part of this review, the County Council was seeking to establish resourced provision for children with severe learning difficulties (SLD) within some of Cumbria's mainstream schools. Along with other secondary schools in Carlisle and district, William Howard was approached by the Authority some time ago and asked if they would consider hosting resourced provision at the school. Having established the school's willingness to participate in the project, this consultation was about turning the school's commitment to a vision into a reality.
