The Department has discussed the viability of The Kingsway Academy with the Local Authority (LA) and the Northern Schools Trust (NST) on several occasions since October 2016. The Secretary of State has agreed the school should close by the end of 2017/18 and the Department is working closely with the LA and NST to plan the transition for pupils. The school site will remain in LA ownership and the Department will work with the LA on options for its future use.
