The Ilkeston Partnership Sixth-Form between Ormiston Ilkeston Academy and Kirk Hallam Community Technology and Sports College is to split, it has been announced today (Thursday).

The two schools have worked together to jointly teach sixth-formers since 2008.

The split is because of ‘a changing educational landscape’, according to a joint press release issued this morning.

Principal of the Ilkeston school Tracey Dundas said: “This curriculum offer will enable us to continue building on our respective strengths while specialising further for the benefit of all students.”
