School profile

King's Leadership Academy Warrington

We are the lead school for school direct in partnership with Edge Hill University. Our school has been given an outstanding grading by Ofsted. Our mission can be broken down into four pillars:

Academic Skills
We provide a high quality, inclusive curriculum which is vocabulary-led, knowledge-rich, broad and balanced, with a very high uptake of the English Baccalaureate, over twice the national average.

Intellectual Habits
To transform life chances we have to transform habits. The Trust’s educational model actively shapes habits of daily punctuality and attendance together with a highly positive attitude to learning so as to maximise the time available to develop a strong core of academic skills.

Qualities of Character
The trust’s ASPIRE code provides a values-led decision-making framework that helps students codify their behaviour and gain a better perspective on life

Qualities of Leadership
The development of character through the vehicle of leadership is the cornerstone of our specialism through a plethora of leadership and character-building opportunities to broaden their horizons and engage in a wider range of co-curricular experiences.
