Sheffield parents are spoilt for choice when it comes to picking out high-performing schools for their children.

There are many Outstanding primary and secondary schools across the city with pupils performing well against national averages.

There are a number of schools in Sheffield that have either closed, change names or have been totally rebuilt.

The Star’s list of schools that have closed down comes as we launch a campaign calling for fairer school funding.

Headteachers across the city are warning of mass redundancies and an ongoing struggle to keep schools open amid a funding crisis.

This is after it emerged that Sheffield schools are the worst funded out of all the major cities in England.

A number of headteachers and politicians have already backed the fight and you can read more about the crisis on the Star’s website.
