GRAYS SCHOOL and Media Arts College is set to become an academy.
The school has sent out a letter to parents detailing the proposal and timescale.
The school has taken the opportunity following the departure of the headteacher, Mrs Lynn Ibeji to make the transition.
The school is working in partnership with the local education authority at Thurrock Council to ensure a smooth transition.
The school is also in consultation with the Department for Education as to which form of academy would be best suited for the Hathaway Road school.
Assistant headteacher John Marchant has stepped up to interim head. It is anticipated that a new head will be appointed in January.
