Welcome from the Principal


Hope Academy is an 11-18 Christian Academy which stands at the epicentre of our local community. Serving the Archdiocese and Diocese of Liverpool, our mission is to deliver high quality education by working together to inspire excellence guided by Christian values. As a Christian Academy, we consider the spiritual and social development of our young people to be as important as their academic success and we want to ensure that we celebrate and develop the uniqueness of every individual. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we live by our Core Values: Respect, Courage and Ambition. These values ensure that, as a community, we care for ourselves and one another.

Our team of teachers and support staff are dedicated to making a difference to the lives of our students and we offer a wide, varied and challenging curriculum throughout all key stages. Our students engage with a range of extra-curricular activities in order to develop their wider passions and enhance their Academy life. We believe that all our students have something wonderful to offer and we work passionately to nuture these talents.

Hope Academy enjoys a magnificent building surrounded by spacious grounds. There is every opportunity for students to succeed, as we have outstanding facilities which include: advanced science laboratories, a modern ICT network, a recording studio and a fully equipped technology suite. Students benefit from spacious and stylish surroundings and can enjoy social interaction in both indoor and outdoor situations.

I am proud to be the Principal at Hope Academy and to work with such committed students and parents. My belief is that if we work together, in the light of the Holy Trinity, we can achieve great things for our students and be outstanding in all we do.
