Consultation on the Sixth Form College’s proposed achievement of academy status and formation of the Potteries Educational Trust

After a recently completed government review of further education in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire, the Governors of the City of Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College have made the decision to apply for academy status and form the Potteries Educational Trust.   Despite a proposed change in status we will remain the ‘City of Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College’ serving the young people of Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire, providing a high quality academic education.

As part of the process we will consult with students, parents, staff and stakeholders and invite them to have a say on our plans. Please see below our consultation timeline:
