The Future of Lytham St Annes Technology and Performing Arts College's Post 16 Provision

On 1 December 2016, the Governing Body of Lytham St Annes Technology and Performing Arts College (LSATPAC) began a statutory consultation on the proposal to discontinue its post 16 sixth form provision, by permanently lowering its age range from 11-18 years to 11-16 years, with effect from 31 August 2018.  The consultation on this proposal took place from 1 December 2016 to 20 January 2017. 


As part of the statutory process, a decision should now be taken about the proposal and this will be done by Lancashire County Council, who is the decision maker.  If the Authority does not make a decision within two months from the end of the consultation period, the proposal and any representations about the proposal must be passed to the schools adjudicator for a decision.


This is deemed to be a key decision and the provisions of Standing Order No. 25 have been compiled with.
