Proposed Closure of Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School from August 2021
Notice is given in accordance with the Department for Education's statutory guidance 'Opening and Closing Maintained Schools' (November 2019) that Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School's Interim Executive Board (IEB), in consultation with Croydon Council and the Archdiocese of Southwark are proposing to close Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School from August 2021.
Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School is situated at 147 Central Hill, Upper Norwood, London, SE19 1RT.
The majority of the buildings estate needed for a viable 11-16 secondary school is unfit for purpose and in poor repair (these portions of the estate are currently out of use); the pupil roll has fallen consistently over the past several years; and the school budget has been in deficit over the past several years with the school now in significant debt. As a consequence of the above, as well as other factors, the school is increasingly hampered in its capacity to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum.
This notice is an extract from the complete proposal which can be viewed at
