Home Sixth Form Sixth Form Consultation

Moorside High School Consultation




  1. For the past 3 years, Moorside has had very small numbers of students in their Sixth Form. In 2019-20, there were 5 students, in 2020-21, there were 2 students. In 2021-22, there are no students.  Part of the reason for joining the Potteries Education Trust is to work alongside Stoke Sixth Form in the progression to post 16.
  2. The Governing Body of Moorside wants to hear the views of local families, local community, school staff, governors and parents and other bodies on the proposal to: 
  3. Change their age limit to become an 11-16 academy and remove their Sixth Form Provision 
  4. There is no Sixth Form provision at Moorside for 2021-22. Therefore, the current age limit designation of 11-18 does not match the actual educational delivery at the academy.
  5. Moorside recognises that Staffordshire County Council are responsible for ensuring that there are sufficient school places in the county. This includes for 16-19 provision. As such, Moorside wishes to consult with all stake holders about this proposal. 
The Governing Body have commenced a four-week consultation process to seek views of the local community on a proposed change of age limit and removal of Sixth Form Provision. Further information regarding the consultation can be found below.
The consultation starts Friday, 24 September 2021 and ends at 12 noon on Friday, 22 October 2021.
Please send the school your views by 12 noon on Friday 22 October 2021
