Government defies campaign and moves to force Hewett School in Norwich to become an academy


The controversial decision by education secretary Nicky Morgan will spark fury in Lakenham and beyond, where a We’re Backing Hewett campaign has pushed for a local solution to the school’s problem.

But this is unlikely to be the end of the battle, for Norfolk County Council could now launch a judicial review against the order.

The academy order is the beginning of a process, and triggers local consultation. The move to academisation only becomes final when a funding agreement is signed, but opponents of the move will believe that to be a fait accompli.
