Some more info on National Trust Schools and our Results!
National Challenge Trusts are intended for schools where fewer than 30% of students are achieving five GCSEs at A*-C’s including English and Maths. In 2010, Belle Vue Boys' Schools results are predicted to be above 30% for this year (without the help of the Trust Partners!). Unions are opposed to Trusts. The Trust may change the admissions criteria and may sell off some of Belle Vue Boys' School’s assets.
If our school becomes a trust school parents and the local community would have no input or voice in how the school was run and no influence in key decisions such as mixing the school with Belle Vue Girls School (who becoming a trust school with the same trust partners. Is that a coincidence??!!!), other matters such Sex Education, School Ethos and challenging the school to improve.
