Colston’s School has announced the launch of a survey as part of the consultation on the future of the school’s name. 

The school is keen to hear the views of all stakeholder groups and individuals, including staff, parents, former pupils and the wider general public. All these groups are invited to access the survey, review the resource materials available and submit their views through the school’s website www.colstons.org/name-consultation

Current pupils will be submitting their views in a manner appropriate to their age, given that this ranges from 3 to 18.  

“We are very keen to hear the views of as many people as possible to help drive the decision around the future of the school’s name,” explained Headmaster Mr Jeremy McCullough. “We understand that there are numerous viewpoints on this complex issue, and hope that the range of resources and research materials our pupils have had the opportunity to engage with, and that are available on the website, will also help the community form their own thoughts and opinions.” 

The survey will be available until Friday 16 July. Following this, the data will be collated, verified and analysed, and then passed onto the School Governors who will meet to consider the responses in September. The Governor’s will then make a decision on the future of the School’s name. 

If you would prefer to complete a paper copy of the survey, please contact the school on 0117 965 5134 and leave your details or email via email hidden; JavaScript is required. A paper copy will be posted to you and will include a pre-paid return envelope.
