Bedford College is planning to open a Technical Academy in September 2015, taking students in Years 9 & 12. There is a parent consultation currently running to assess support for the scheme amongst parents.

What do you think? Would you send your child? Let us know your views here https://www.snapsurveys.com/wh/s.asp?k=137950185188

We are really keen to understand the views of parents that currently have children in Years 6 & 7 in Bedford and the surrounding areas.

Thank you

no, my child is very happy at her academic subject school which also has technical subjects for those students who would like them at GCSE and A level. why on earth would anyone want to go to a technical academy? what can they offer that a normal state run school cannot? weird waste of money

Bedford college? Seriously? My dd is on a course there and level 1 has been combined with level 2 as they can't afford the extra teaching staff!

Money should be spent on improving what exists
