Statutory Consultation for Derby Cathedral School, proposed to open in September 2018

As part of the process of opening a new school, there is a legal requirement to conduct a public consultation exercise as set out in Section 10 of the Academies Act 2010. This is to allow full and open communication with stakeholders, to gather feedback and assemble a comprehensive range of points of view. The information will be collated, analysed and reported back to the Department for Education.

Your views and feedback are very important. Please take the time to read the consultation pages below and complete the questionnaire. You can also email us at
