Creation of Cumbria Futures Federation

Beacon Hill Community School and Solway Community School have been successfully working together for the last year, offering school to school support and challenge for each other which has led to rapid improvements in outcomes for students, both in terms of academic progress and educational opportunities. In April we launched a consultation to find out what our stakeholders – including our most important stakeholders, parents and students – thought about our proposal to create a Federation between the two schools, to formalise our already successful approach.

With this in mind, and taking into account your responses to our recent consultation, the Governing Bodies of both schools met last week and agreed that with effect from 1st September 2018, we will form a new Federation called the Cumbria Futures Federation. Please see letter below for further information:

Creation of Cumbria Futures Federation

Welcome to our School

Beacon Hill Community School is at the heart of the community in the historic town of Aspatria, situated on the edge of the Solway Plain. Our strength is our size – our small numbers ensure that we can delivery truly personalised learning, ensuring students develop the academic and life skills essential to be successful, confident and resilient young people, whatever their abilities.
