A SOUTHAMPTON school is set to get a new look, education leaders have confirmed

As reported The Sholing Technology College will come under new management when Christian charity Oasis Community Learning take it on.

Now leaders at Oasis have confirmed the school will be rebranded - but only in consultation with parents.

A spokesperson for the charity which already runs Oasis Mayfield and Lord's Hill academies said: "Part of this process is rebranding which heralds a new beginning for the students, staff and wider school community. The cost of rebranding the school buildings and items such as the website will be met by the Trust.

“We know that parents can be concerned about any additional expense of new uniforms. We would like to offer reassurance at this very early stage that any changes to uniforms will only be made in consultation with parents, and would be brought in gradually to keep costs to a minimum.”

The school - which was brought out of special measures last year but came second to last in January's city league tables - is one of three across the city set to benefit from a multimillion pound local authority investment programme to fix condemned buildings and out of date classrooms.

As reported executive head teacher at Mayfield and Lord's Hill Phil Humphreys will take on the Sholing school but it's not yet known whether current head teacher Martin Brown will stay on.
