Minster FM News Generic

1:53pm 1st February 2014

Proposals for a new associated faith based sixth form in York are being launched.

All Saints RC School and Manor CE Academy are wanting to join forces and create a new sixth form which will have a new name and start in September 2015.

The merge of both schools will also allow up to 240 places to be made available to Year 12 pupils. 

Manor Academy Principal Brian Crosby said: "The opportunity to join forces with All Saints and create a faith based sixth form, jointly governed, is exciting and I hope people will support our proposals." 

Academically both city schools are high achievers with exam results consistently above both local and national averages.

All Saints Headteacher Bill Scriven said: "There are clear benefits for both our organisations in a joint venture. It is very exciting that two high achieving schools should come together in this way. It is the best example of the whole being greater than the sum of it's parts."

A formal consultation period will run from 1 February to 31 March 2014, where all views will be considered before a decision is made.

There will also be public consultation meeting at both schools starting next week, or contributions can be made via email to sixthformresponse@gmail.com.
