n Friday 9 November, City College governors approved a proposal to become the sponsor for Whitehawk Primary school which was ordered to become an Academy by the Department for Education after it went into special measures in autumn 2011.
An approach was made to City College earlier this year to sponsor the Academy, a move which is supported by the City Council and the University of Brighton. Despite the fact that the school has improved its results this year, it must become an academy by government decree in any event and the only question is that of the sponsor.
