Liverpool is the fifth worst place in the country for children to progress through secondary school according to the government.
In 2017, only 56% of Liverpool pupils reached the expected standard at Key Stage Two and only 55% of secondary schools in Liverpool were judged as good or outstanding.
Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson, said: “The Liverpool Promise brings together everyone involved in giving young people the best start in life and preparing them for the future. This is important for those individuals and their chances of fulfilling their potential, but it is also important for the future of the city and our vision of a strong sustainable economy.
“We have good schools and good teachers doing amazing things, but we need to keep a focus on improving standards and exam results, and this year’s provisional GCSE and A level results are encouraging. We can’t afford to stand still and we must be ambitious, celebrate the inspiring achievements of our young people and guarantee the education opportunities they deserve.”
PROGRESS SPORTS aims to tackle these disappointing figures with a number of Liverpool-based study programmes such as Sport Btec, GCSE and functional skill certificates; all delivered in a unique and fun learning environment.
