LIPA Primary School wants to extend teaching to Year 11
Currently serving reception to year 6, LIPA Primary School is planning to add years 7 to 11. The school is part of the LIPA Learning Group which also comprises a higher education institute and a sixth form college.

Our project-based approach to education has proved successful. Our primary school was rated as ‘Good’ by OFSTED in 2017, our sixth form as ‘Outstanding’ in 2019 and learning at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts received a TEF Gold Award in 2017. Our admissions policy is simple, open and reaches out to our locality and wider region while remaining fully inclusive. This will remain the case for all years.

At present, we are unable to provide education for children aged 11 to 16. Extending the age range at LIPA Primary School will allow us to bridge the gap between primary school and sixth form college. Opening in 2014, LIPA Primary School, has been over-subscribed ever since. Extending our teaching years will also allow us to offer more places.

We believe there is support to make these changes. For a few years now parents and guardians of children at our primary school have been asking ‘what next?’ but we’d like to hear from local people too. We are holding a public consultation on our proposals until 7 March. More details of our plans are available here and in the download below, where you can also access an online survey.
