Press Statement from Dr Kevin Bawn, Principal, Clyst Vale Community College, 14th May PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr Bawn

I confirm that in June 2014 Clyst Vale Community College was victim of a financial theft by external person or persons unknown. This was much more sophisticated than the “phone scam” reported in today’s news, verified by the Police investigation at the time.

The theft was reported immediately to the Police, auditors, and most importantly the Academy’s Regulatory body, the Education Funding Agency [EFA] who last year carried out their own rigorous investigation into the circumstances surrounding the theft.

The EFA is satisfied with both the College’s response and the management of its finances: no one at the College is implicated. The theft was reported in the College’s annual accounts in December 2014. Some of the stolen money has been identified and accounts frozen, but has yet to be returned to the College, as police investigations continue.

At present, Clyst Vale’s focus is on the four hundred students who are sitting GCSE and A-level exams, which started this week. Our priority is to raise student achievement, which has been on an upward curve. The real story at CVCC is that we are a great school striving to be even better, with hard working staff and students committed to the best possible outcomes.  We have a new humanities block, national success in Jaguar Landrover’s 4x4 competition, the award of a significant DfE  ‘character’ development grant, and girls’ rugby successes in the year of the Rugby World Cup in the UK.


Clyst Vale’s finances have been well-managed for many years, but the real tragedy of this theft is that at a time of static education funding, a sum of money was stolen which would otherwise have been used for the benefit of our students. We are outraged that, in effect, the criminals have stolen from children and accordingly have pursued every avenue to recoup the money, including on-going legal action. However, it is worth re-stating that the College’s financial reserves absorbed the theft, so there has been no impact on staff or students during academic year 2014-15.
