Sexeys – MP secures breathing space
David Warburton, MP for Somerton & Frome, has now met with the Regional Schools Commissioner (RSC) and Secretary of State. The meeting was to discuss the future of Sexeys School in Bruton.
A lot of local opposition to the plans had been raised by the apparent intention to force through an unwelcome takeover in just two weeks.
The meeting yesterday (17th October) secured an agreement to pause the process. The RSC, Hannah Woodhouse has agreed to an extended consultation to allow more engagement with the local community.
A formal announcement will be made on Monday, originally the date set for a final decision.
