Academy protesters announce plan

People opposing plans for a new academy to replace two schools say they are going to apply for village green status to try to stop building work.

Stoke-on-Trent City Council wants to replace Mitchell and Edensor high schools with an academy in either Park Hall or Adderley Green.

Margaret Lowe, from the Community School Action Group, said neither site was suitable.

The council has said any available sites will have "good and bad points".

Plans to merge eight schools into five academies in Stoke-on-Trent were revealed by the city council last year.
