Schools honoured at Educate Awards

The Northern Schools Trust had three of its innovative schools and academies recognised at this year’s Educate Awards, held at Liverpool Cathedral on Friday, 21st November.

The Trust is currently working in collaboration with a number of schools in the North West of England to develop a unique approach to vocational and academic success.

Liverpool Life Sciences UTC, located in the city’s Baltic Triangle, were double award-winners picking up the ‘Career Aspiration Award – sponsored by GMLPF’ and the award for ‘Science Project of the Year – sponsored by Liverpool John Moores University’.

As the first school in the UK to specialise in Science and Health Care for 14 to 19 year olds, Life Sciences UTC reaches out locally and nationally to members of the scientific community to provide its students with vocational education pathways.

It was an honour to have our school recognised at the Educate Awards 2014. The award is a testament to the school, the staff and most importantly, our students.

The students at Liverpool Life Sciences UTC are genuinely passionate about their future and we work with our partners and trusted businesses to provide them with an unrivalled gateway to excellence.
