Our Schools

Our efforts are focused on improving the life chances and choices of our students and their families.

We support schools with relieving the burden of some administrative, governance, marketing and finance matters in order to free up schools’ time and resources to concentrate on what they do best: getting results for their students.

Liverpool Life Sciences UTC

Principal, Mr Ian Parry

The first school in the UK specialising in science and health care for 14 to 19 year olds.

Led by Ian Parry and his senior team, the Liverpool Life Sciences UTC opened its’ doors to students in September 2013.

The Studio

Principal, Mr Shaun McInerney

A ground-breaking school for 14-19 years olds specialising in digital media, coding, gaming and creative technology.

The world is changing faster than the education system can respond and The Studio seeks to close the gap between what young people need to succeed in life, and the skills and knowledge that the current education system provides.

The Studio, like all other Studio Schools use new approaches to learning, involving enterprise projects and time spent in real work situations. Students are creators, rather than consumers of technology and this empowers them to generate opportunities for themselves within this emerging sector.

Lead by Shaun McInerney and his senior team, The Studio educates young people for success in a digital world and in particular, for employment, entrepreneurship or further study in the digital media sector.

This school is a one of a kind that educates employable, motivated and tech savvy young people who will feel comfortable in the digital world.

The Academy is dedicated to ensuring that its students receive an outstanding academic provision and that they are prepared for the world into which they enter when leaving the school.

Principal, Mr Mike Westerdale

A true community school, focused on creating a centre of learning excellence.

Led by Mike Westerdale and his senior team, the North Liverpool Academy opened its’ doors in 2006 following the merger of two under achieving schools.

2016 saw North Liverpool Academy achieve its best set of results in four years, with 51% of students securing five or more A* to C grades at GCSE including English and Maths, a significant 20% increase on the year before.

The Academy is a true community school, focused on creating a centre of learning excellence within an inner city area previously denied access to high quality, non-selective state education.

In 2012, it was the first school in the country to be awarded the IQM flagship status for inclusion, in recognition of its commitment to removing as many barriers to learning as possible.
