King Solomon International Business School 

Birmingham-based African and Afro-Caribbean churches have reacted strongly to the recent proposal by the Department for Education to transfer the King Solomon International Business School to the  Islamic-based Stars Multi Academy Trust.

Bishops Tedroy Powell, Deverton Douglas and Desmond Jaddoo, co-chairs of the ‘West Midlands Faith in Action’ partnership of Black-led Churches and businesses, have written to Andrew Warren, West Midlands Regional Director of the Department for Education, requesting a meeting to discuss their opposition to the proposed move.

Quoting specific examples, West Midlands FIA leaders feel that the way the King Solomon International Business School has been treated over the years shows disrespect for the Black Christian community and disregard for its concerns and values. They request that the transfer process is halted until there has been full and proper consultation with key stakeholders in the Black Christian community and the parents whose children attend the school. West Midlands FIA promises to engage in a local, regional and national campaign in response to the Department for Education’s proposal.
