About us

Blackpool is one of 12 areas in England to be chosen as an Opportunity Area and forms a part of the government’s efforts to unlock the true potential of England’s young people.

Blackpool has struggled in certain areas in terms of educational results – at times falling below the national average for disadvantaged children and young people, across early education to post-16 learning. This is something we are passionate about addressing with collaborative work across Blackpool with support from the Department for Education.

The aim is to aspire for ambition and better futures for all Blackpool children accomplished by inspiration and innovation in education to truly make a difference over the next three years.

Bringing together local schools, colleges, businesses and organisations, we are committed giving every individual the chance to unlock unimaginable potential by building happy and hopeful futures.
