A council spokesperson said:

Our children and young people committee on June 2 resolved to conduct a ballot of Hove Park parents with regards to their proposal to move towards academy status.

The question put to parents was as follows: “Do you agree that Hove Park Secondary School should convert to become an Academy – Yes or No”.

The count has taken place today (Tuesday 15 July). A total of 1,528 ballot papers were sent out, and 544 responses were received – a return rate of 35.6%. The results were as follows:

Yes to becoming an academy: 156

No to becoming an academy: 387

 (One ballot paper was rejected).

We have passed the results of the ballot on to Hove Park School.

The decision on whether a school should convert to become an academy is a matter for the school’s governors, not the council.
