Cllr Dan Cohen Alwoodley started this petition to Director of Children & Families Leeds City Council

Allerton High School is an Ofsted Outstanding school in the heart of Alwoodley. It is a very popular school, however it doesn’t have sufficient places to accommodate the young people in its catchment. The school would very much like to expand to serve more Alwoodley families and educate more of our young people. Local ward councillors have been calling for the school to expand for the past year.

Following a change to its admissions policy, young people on the schools doorstep have not been offered places for the coming academic year. This was despite council officers assuring residents that most would continue to receive offers of places at Allerton High School.

As a community we are calling on the Council to, urgently, expand Allerton High Schools PAN and to do so to now, to ensure this years cohort are able to attend their local school, as well as future years.

The community, the school and ward councillors all know this is the only way to resolve the high school places crisis in this part of Leeds. It can be delivered efficiently and effectively and if the council moves at great speed can remedy the issues caused this year.
