Improving post-16 educational opportunities for young people in North Sheffield

Overview

Survey for parents and guardians of children aged 7 to 16

The Minerva Trust is working with the Stocksbridge Town Deal Board to consider introducing new post-16 (6th form / years 12 and 13) education provision at Stocksbridge High School. In this survey, we’re asking for views about our proposals from parents and guardians of school-age children. We’re particularly keen to hear from people with children currently in year 3 (age 7-8) through to year 11 (age 15-16).  

Separately, we will also be asking for young people’s views via local schools.

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. 

To help the Town Deal Board and the Trust shape these proposals we would love to hear your views.
