About

Stoke-on-Trent is one of 12 areas in England chosen as an Opportunity Area, designed to unlock the potential of England’s young people.

From early education up to post-16, outcomes for disadvantaged children and young people in Stoke-on-Trent are well below the national average.

Working in partnership with local businesses, schools, nurseries and colleges, we aim to give every young person the chance to go as far as their talents and hard work will take them.

The programme is focused on improving:

  • early years education
  • English, maths and science outcomes
  • pupil engagement
  • young people’s choices at 16
