CVCC Proposal and Variation to Admission Arrangements

The Trustees of Clyst Vale Academy Trust are consulting on a proposal to change the age range of  Clyst Vale Community College from 11-18 to 11-16 through the phased closure of the Sixth Form. 

The proposal being consulted upon is as follows:

• Students currently in Year 12 and Year 13 will remain at Clyst Vale’s Sixth Form to complete their studies. 

• The last year group to be admitted into the Sixth Form would be in September 2024. Students admitted into the Sixth Form in September 2024 will complete their studies in the Sixth Form.

• The Sixth Form would close with effect from 31 August 2026.

There will be no change to the Published Admission Number (PAN) for the school which will remain at 180. 

Full details including how to make a representation to the consultation can be found via the links below:
