A DATE has been set for the official opening of a new sixth form in Woolston.

The joint Fox Wood and Green Lane sixth form will open on February 24, on the former Woolston High School site.

Green Lane Community Special School in Padgate and Fox Wood School in Birchwood, for pupils aged four to 16, will move to the new location on Holes Lane in September.

Clr Colin Froggatt, executive board member for children and young people’s services, said: “This new site will be a fantastic addition to the education facilities in the town and it’s exciting to be so close to the first opening.

“The centre will enable families with children with special educational needs to access a whole new range of efficient support services to better meet their needs.”

Disappointing that in 2014 there is a new sixth form for young people with SEN on a segregated site. Why not on the mainstream college on Winwick Road site, or Priestley College? Young adults with additional needs should be included in society fully, not excluded by being educated at a "special" place. How are these vulnerable people ever going to be fully recognised as being equal to more able students if they are not fully included in life? How are more able people going to accept them as equals if they are not educated with them? Out if sight out of mind.
