West Suffolk: Consultation will start next month on Catholic schools organisation

Consultation on Catholic schools in Bury

Consultation on Catholic schools in Bury

The Catholic schools in west Suffolk have agreed to consult on proposals to change the organisation of their Bury St Edmunds schools.


The consultation will start on October 7 and will end on December 13, which ties in with Suffolk County Council’s consultation on the reorganisation of other, non-Catholic schools in Bury.

The Catholic schools are proposing to move to a two-tier structure of education, which would mean the “outstanding” St Louis Catholic Middle School in Bury would have to close.

A letter confirming this information will be sent to parents and carers tomorrow via children already attending the Catholic schools in the West Suffolk Pyramid.

The schools in the West Suffolk Catholic Pyramid are: St Benedict’s Roman Catholic (RC) Upper School in Bury, St Louis RC Middle School in Bury, St Edmund’s RC Primary School in Bury, St Louis RC Academy in Newmarket, St Felix RC Primary School in Haverhill and St Joseph’s RC Primary in Sudbury.

Further information regarding consultation events will follow shortly.

Anyone who has any questions or comments should contact any member of the School Organisation Team on 01284 758829.
