Flexi-School Federation

Our Flexi-school Federation was founded by the senior staff members from Hollinsclough CE Academy, and we operate from our small rural school in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

We are now making our approach to Flexi-schooling available to rural schools who are looking to establish their own Flexi-schooling provision and want the backup of the national lead and want to join a growing group of schools as an affiliate.

In the past, we offered this information free of charge, but the increased interest and the resulting demands on staff time, not to mention the declining revenue budget have forced us to apply a small one-off charge of £100.00 for affiliation to the Federation. This fee is the same for individuals or per school.

Affiliation will bring access to the most up-to-date information in the constantly evolving world of Flexi-schooling and offer you potential solutions to your own circumstances.  You will learn from our own evolution and we will learn from yours.

The affiliation will include access to current documentation, along with email and telephone support; and for an additional fee, you can visit Hollinsclough or choose to have one of our onsite consultancy support visits.

Affiliation will also provide access to other professionals and our network of contacts across the country, some of whom have access to the highest levels of Government.
