Sheffield’s first ‘free school’ will open its doors next Friday - with staff insisting it will offer a genuine educational alternative for its community’s teenagers.

Chapeltown Academy is a sixth form centre offering a range of more than 15 A-levels, including sciences, maths, languages and humanities.

Critics, including local MP Angela Smith, say the area doesn’t need more sixth form places, and claim the academy will divert funding from the area’s hard-pressed state schools.
