Fazakerley 6th Form to remain open

FAZAKERLEY High School in Liverpool is to continue to provide a 6th Form after a deal was brokered for its continued operation. The School announced a consultation on closing its 6th Form provision in January 2017, due to financial pressures and low numbers. Liverpool City Council has been working with the senior leadership team at Fazakerley and neighbouring Schools to come up with a solution. Now it can be revealed that a new, innovative 6th form model will be launched in September 2017 for new Year 12 students; Fazakerley High School, at Alt Valley Communiversity. It will see English and maths A-Levels continue to be delivered via Fazakerley at Alt Valley Community Trust's Skills Centre, along with existing and expanded vocational provision. Other A-Levels will be delivered at Archbishop Beck Catholic Sports College and Alsop High School. Students will remain on roll at Fazakerley High School and transport will be provided between the Fazakerley and Alt Valley sites.

Liverpool's Assistant Mayor for Education, Councillor Nick Small, said:- "I'm pleased that Fazakerley's 6th Form will not close. Many parents were rightly concerned about the impact this would have on progression routes for children and gaps in 6th form provision in parts of the City. This new, innovative collaborative model will give students more choice and will improve educational outcomes and opportunities for young people living in North Liverpool."

James Beaton, Headteacher of Fazakerley High School said:- "We are very excited to be entering into this partnership with Alt Valley. The provision of education Post 16, that we can now offer together, is way beyond anything we were able to offer before and the range of courses and experiences available will enhance the education of all our pupils. Fazakerley High School at Alt Valley Communiversity is an exciting new development for us all."

Gill Mason, Principal of Alt Valley Community Trust, said:- "We are delighted to be part of this exciting new initiative, providing a much enhanced vocational offer through our unique partnership for children in Liverpool We are committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for Fazakerley High School learners."

Merseyside Police thank the public following Manchester attack


ON 24 May 2017, Merseyside Police released CCTV images of 2 men they want to question in connection with the theft of a large quantity of cigarettes from a delivery vehicle, in Maghull, Sefton. The 2 males are reported to have confronted a delivery driver at the Shell Petrol Station, on Northway, at around 10am, on 12 May 2017. We are told that they then took the cigarettes and ran off along Northway and into a waiting vehicle.

Detective Inspector Robbie Moss said:- "There were several members of the public nearby who witnessed the males running and we urge them to come forward and tell us what they saw. If anybody believes they know who was responsible or recognises anyone from the CCTV images, we urge them to get in touch and assist us."

Anyone with information should contact Police on:- 0151 777 3833 or Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555111.
