The transfer of a well-known Norwich academy to a new sponsor is still due to go ahead, education chiefs say.
In September, after several years of poor exam results, the Transforming Education in Norfolk (TEN) Group announced City Academy Norwich - formerly Earlham High School - would move to a new academy trust.
At the time, the move to the Bohunt Education Trust (BET) was said to be awaiting ministerial sign-off, which was expected within weeks - but it is still yet to receive the final go-ahead.
But a spokesperson for the TEN Group said the plans remained on track, with final government approval expected soon.
