A new sixth form could be opened at this Sheffield secondary school


share close

A consultation has been launched about plans to open a new sixth form at a Sheffield secondary school.

New post-16 education, with a focus on engineering and technology, could be provided at Stocksbridge High School.

The Minerva Trust is working with the Stocksbridge Town Deal Board on the plans.

Sheffield Council said: “Through our plans, Chapeltown Academy would create a satellite hub located at Stocksbridge High School to deliver a range of A level or equivalent courses, with a focus on engineering and technology subjects.

“Chapeltown Academy and Stocksbridge High School are part of Minerva Learning Trust and already work together with a shared vision and set of educational values.

“This partnership is in a good position to build local education routes through secondary school into post-16 and beyond, at the same time respecting our local heritage and growing ambition for exciting careers in modern engineering and technology where there is huge demand for new talent.

“The new facility would be part of the existing high school estate in Stocksbridge, creating the opportunity for students to access further education within their own community as well as attracting a wider group of students to this part of the city.”

Parents and guardians of school age children are being asked their views, in particular people with children currently in Y3 through to Y11.

Young people will be asked their opinions separately through local schools.

Parents can give their views here and the consultation closes on January 10.
