Academies launch new name consultation


Two of our academies in the Trust have taken the important decision to discuss in an open consultation whether to change or keep their name. Colston’s Girls’ School and The Dolphin School, both on Cheltenham Road in Montpelier area of central Bristol have both decided to launch a public name consultation process, taking the time to engage with their local community and families of the school to discuss and debate this important decision.

Guided by the Trust's core values of respect, responsibility, curiosity and resilience, students across both academies will take a collaborative approach and encourages city-wide engagement through an open questionnaire available for completion on their websites. Results from the questionnaire combined with research and resources collected by the schools will help the staff and students decide whether to keep or change their school names and logo's.

The students and staff of Colston’s Girls’ School and V6 Sixth Form launched their consultation in July 2020 and will make the important decision in October 2020. If the decision to change the name is decided then the new name will be decided through a democratic vote made by the students and staff of CGS and V6 (academic year 2020-2021).

Please share your thoughts and opinions with CGS by completing their online consultation questionnaire by 14th August (on their website).

The age of the pupils means that the majority of engagement will take place in school and further information about the consultation process will be launched when pupils return to school in the new academic year.
