Following the excellent news yesterday regarding Clough Hall receiving the news that they have received funding for a new school which will improve educational standards in the Kidsgrove area. Clough Hall has released the following statement.
"We are delighted at the prospect of a new school. We deliver a rich and diverse curriculum that gives access to success for every one of our children. At present, our extensive facilities include an onsite bistro, hair dressing salon as well as a building academy and any design solution will have to include these integral facilities. We will also have to satisfy ourselves that the cost benefit analysis of a PFI design and build is in the best long term interest of the children in Kidsgrove.
We are a true community school in every sense of the word and our community will be consulted and kept informed as the proposals are drafted and negotiated."
It does appear that there are conditions attached to the funding as would be expected and Clough Hall now has to make the right decisions for the future of education in Kidsgrove. We are sure that all residents will back the Clough Hall Governors in whatever decision they reach. After All the most important factor in all this is the education of local students.
