The Millennium Centre is located in Littleover, Derby. It is a post-16 sixth form centre, run jointly by Derby Moor Community Sports College Trust and Littleover Community School for students who wish to further their education by completing A Levels. The majority of students come from the two schools however external students can apply to attend. The sixth form has joint heads; Jamie Henshaw for Derby Moor and Rob Archer for Littleover.[1] There are a wide range of subjects for students to study at A-Level, with more recently the addition of a Sports BTEC mainly influenced by Derby Moor being a Sports College. The Millennium Cente is the top performing, non-private, sixth form in Derby.[2] The Millennium Centre will be split between the two schools, after a decade of cooperation. This is due to the ever changing nature of the two schools.
