Dear Parents,

You will know that we made the decision to suspend the Sixth Form last year. This was because there were not enough students planning to choose our Sixth Form.

We are now about to undertake a feasibility study with regard to the potential re-introduction of the Sixth Form. This will involve consultation with students and parents as well as comparing our potential offer with the surrounding providers. We are considering a range of qualifications, academic and vocational as well as work related learning. We are determined to offer your child a valuable Sixth Form experience and this feasibility study is designed to fully assess the viability of a new Sixth Form at the Winsford Academy.

Once the new Winsford Academy Principal is appointed, there will be a further update later in the summer term.
