On 8 March 2018, the Cabinet considered and approved the proposal to discontinue the post 16 sixth form provision at Carr Hill High School and Sixth Form Centre, Royal Avenue, Kirkham, PR4 2ST, by permanently lowering its age range from 11-18 years to 11-16 years, with effect from 31 August 2019.


The county council carried out a consultation from 18 December 2017 to 2 February 2018 following publication of a public notice (PDF 55 KB). More information is available in the complete proposal (PDF 110 KB).

Cabinet reports and decisions

8 March 2018 – decision to approve the proposal

7 December 2017 – cabinet report and decision to consult and publish statutory notice


Carr Hill High School and Sixth Form Centre approached the local authority in September 2017 and informed us of their wish to consult on the future of their post 16 provision due to concerns about its financial and educational viability. Carr Hill High School and Sixth Form Centre has low and reducing student numbers and a narrowing curriculum offer in its sixth form, both of which are impacting on the financial viability of the school.

As a result of these discussions, cabinet made the decision for the Lancashire County Council to proceed with the proposal.
