1 Committed sponsorship contributions represent agreed percentage contributions to CTC capital cash limits as secured in formal funding agreements with CTCs.
2 Confirmed sponsorship includes sponsorship beyond the cash limit.
3 Public consultations were held by Kent on its proposals to close the Downs School. One statutory objection containing 62 signatures was made to the section 12 proposal subsequently published.
4 The sponsors commitment is stated net of the proceeds of sale of the site of the former school: the Exchequer contribution will be reduced by the amount of the proceeds of sale.
5 The confirmed contribution is net of the proceeds of sale of the former school site and of contributions to community provision and the chapel.
6 This figure includes the donation of the present site, which has been valued at £3.445 million.
7 In each case, LEA, local schools and other interests consulted on proposal to establish CTC.
