Education in Kirkby and Field Lane needs to improve to ensure there is excellent provision for children and adults alike
Residents are concerned by low attainment in secondary education resulting in many pupils being educated outside of the borough. Kirkby College has closed which denies access to local further education for adults of all ages.
1st 4 Kirkby believes we need to educate our young people in our own town and end the haemorrhaging of talent to surrounding areas. We are aso campaigning to make use of community centres for training and education, whilst Kirkby College has the potential to become a community led adult education facility. We will work in partnership with existing successful centres outside of Kirkby to make this happen.
