Henbury School is on a journey of improvement to ensure it provides the best possible learning environment for all of its students. As part of this journey, and as previously communicated, the school will start the new academic year in September with a new name and new uniform.
The school will be called Blaise High School
This name reflects the school’s place in its local community - the school is located close to Blaise Castle Estate and was the preferred choice in the survey with the highest number of preferences.
On 26 November the Governing Body at Henbury announced that it had been carefully considering the school’s future and evaluating its options and had agreed unanimously that it believed that the best way forward was for Henbury School to join the Greenshaw Learning Trust.
We published our plans and held a series of meetings for parents and other stakeholders and we received questions and views.
After receiving a report on the consultation, the Governing Body has confirmed its belief that joining the Greenshaw Learning Trust is the best way to ensure the school continues on its improvement journey.
We have an Inset Day on Friday 21st June, the school will be closed to students.
Changes to the end of term
Henbury is currently in the process of being rebrokered to the Greenshaw Learning Trust. This is expected to happen during the summer break. To ensure staff are fully prepared, we have added two preparatory INSET days at the end of this school year. These INSET days will be on the 22nd and 23rd July 2019, so students will not be required to come in to school on these days. This means that the last day the of the school year for students will be a full school day on Friday 19th July, finishing at 3.00pm.
