The document below provides a summary of the outcomes of the public consultation that took place from 1st October to 12th November 2019. The consultation asked for feedback on the joining of the Corporation of Gateway Sixth Form College with the Better Futures Multi-Academy Trust (BFMAT), a Multi-Academy Trust established by Coventry University.
The Governors of Gateway College have considered all feedback from stakeholders that was received via both the online survey and through consultation meetings. The Corporation has determined to proceed with the proposal to dissolve the Corporation and simultaneously enter into a funding agreement to form a 16-19 academy as part of Better Futures Multi-Academy Trust.
For students applying to Gateway College in 2020 there will not be any change to your courses or your experience at the College. We will still provide the same high quality teaching and learning, and individual support to ensure you are on the right path to succeed in your chosen career, whether that be university, an apprenticeship, further training or employment.
It is anticipated that the conversion to academy status will take place on or around 1st April 2020. The conversion remains subject to Department for Education approval and satisfactory outcomes of due diligence.
Thank you to all who have taken part in the consultation, we value your involvement.
