THE Kimberley School has made the first steps towards becoming an academy, it has been revealed.

Headteacher at the school Chris Teal made the move towards taking control of the school by registering an interest for academy status with the Department for Education last Wednesday.

If the school became an academy it would mean instead of being run by Nottinghamshire County Council as it currently is, it would be run by a team of school governors who would have the freedom to change things such as the curriculum and dictate the intake of pupils.

A campaign group has already been launched against the proposals, called Save Kimberley School.
