What the school offers its staff

Hope Academy is a mixed academy secondary school for pupils aged 11-16. It is a joint Church of England / Catholic school.

The school was formed after a merger of Newton-le-Willows Community High School and St Aelreds Catholic Technology College. The Academy is part of the All Saints Multi Academy Trust. All Saints Multi Academy Trust is a joint Church of England and Catholic Academy trust, making it incredibly unique. The trust comprises of four secondary schools and one primary school, with five primary schools set to transfer into the trust before the end of the academic year. There is a trust wide commitment to improve, accelerate and enable ambitious life goals amongst all young people in their academies.

Hope Academy is situated on a main road, 2 minutes from J23 M6 and 5 minutes from J9 M62, with plentiful buses and within easy access of Manchester and Liverpool; it is approximately 10 minutes’ walk from Newton-le-Willows train station.

Commitment to safeguarding

Our Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants will be required to undergo safeguarding checks appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the Trust is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are "spent" unless they are "protected" under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.
