Plans for schools to move over to a two-tier system

Have your say

Two middle schools could be closed in Ashington under new plans to introduce two-tier education to the town.

Proposals have been drawn up to scrap the three-tier school structure in what would be the biggest change to education in the town since the Ashington Learning Partnership Trust (ALPT) was established in 2007.

Officers at Northumberland County Council are seeking approval for a 16-week consultation from next Tuesday on the proposals, which would be implemented from September 2015.
