Stoke-on-Trent City Council suggests 11 academy sites

Up to 11 potential locations have been proposed for the site of a new academy in Staffordshire to replace two high schools.

Stoke-on-Trent City Council approved plans in July 2009 to merge the city's Mitchell and Endsor high schools.

It applied for permission to build the 20:20 Academy in the city's Adderley Green but councillors rejected the site amid street protests in December.

The council is consulting on more sites including Adderley Green again.

Consultation deadline

Berry Hill School's site is also under consideration as is Mitchell and Endsor High Schools' premises and Park Hall Country Park.

The sites have been suggested in a feasibility study commissioned by the council and the consultation runs until 7 April.

It said people could comment on all the locations, but it did not mean the council would have to put any of them forward for its 20:20 Academy planning application.

The academy forms part of the council's £250m Building Schools for the Future (BSF) scheme to replace or refurbish schools by 2014.
