Following the Secretary of State's announcement on 5 July and 6 August 2010, the position for the Building School for the Future programme in Bolton is as follows:

Bolton St Catherine's Academy Unaffected
Essa Academy Unaffected
Kearsley Academy Academy-decision on any capital allocation to be taken in the next few months
Bolton Muslim Girls' School Stopped
Ladybridge High School Stopped
Little Lever Specialist Language College Stopped
Rumworth Special School Stopped
Sharples School Stopped
Smithills Stopped
Westhoughton High Stopped

The decision to end the wasteful and bureaucratic BSF programme does not mean the end of the capital investment in schools. Future capital spending will be prioritised on the basis of the outcome of the Capital Review by Sebastian James, due to report by the end of the calendar year.
