Hope Academy in Newton-le-Willows has officially joined All Saints Multi Academy Trust, based in Liverpool.

The secondary school, located on Ashton Road, is the fourth secondary school to be welcomed into the growing multi academy trust.

Hope Academy is a joint denominational school which serves the Diocese and Archdiocese of Liverpool. Its mission is to deliver high-quality education and to inspire excellence guided by Christian values.

Bound by the same values, All Saints Multi Academy Trust is sponsored by both the Diocese and Archdiocese of Liverpool and is inspired by the ecumenical vision of Bishop David Sheppard and Archbishop Derek Worlock of how communities are ‘stronger and better together’.

The trust brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record in managing educational institutions within a Christian framework. This collaboration will provide Hope Academy with access to valuable resources, expertise, and a supportive network that will contribute to the school’s growth and success.

Marie Adams, principal of Hope Academy, said: “We are proud to be joining a multi-academy trust that holds the same values and ethos as Hope Academy. We whole heartedly believe that becoming a member of a family of schools will allow us to continue to grow and flourish as a community of learners. We are committed to our core values of ‘Respect’, ‘Courage’, ‘Ambition’ and ‘Hope’, and we are confident that our relationship with All Saints Multi Academy Trust will only strengthen our ability to serve our young people.

“I look forward to bright future for the academy.”

CEO of All Saints Multi Academy Trust, Heather Duggan, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Hope Academy to our family of schools.

“Our vision is to create a multi academy trust of exceptional and distinctive Christian schools which deliver outstanding education and learning. This is something we’re well on our way to achieving, with additional schools set to join us in early 2024.”

Heather added: “We look forward to working closely with Hope Academy’s leadership team and getting to know this wonderful school community.”

The Academy of St Francis of Assisi, The Academy of St Nicholas, All Saints Sixth Form College, St Margaret’s Church of England Academy, and Faith Primary Academy in Liverpool, also form part of All Saints Multi Academy Trust.
