A MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

Youth Engagement Schools Trust is delighted to have been selected to create a new special education provision in Halton, Widnes. ‘’The Raise Academy’ will be a new type of education provision to add to the capacity the local authority already offers.

As a trust we are determined to secure excellence for all, and providing world class education and support to those who have previously failed in education, we are able to achieve this by continuously striving for the best; improving, innovating and reflecting. We all aspire to the highest standards of achievement. This includes, but is not limited to; educational accomplishment; the incredible passion that young people develop for learning; values; and inter-personal skills so that they can contribute positively to local and global communities.

Our Vision for The Raise Academy is to work constantly to provide excellence for every student. With a highly-trained, specialised team, we will support the entire cohort’s needs, particularly focusing on those students with Emotional and social difficulties; with an aspirational environment to recapture an often lost passion for learning and creativity we hope to capture new found curiosity and imagination to help all become the best versions of themselves.

‘Raise’ represents far more than just a name for a school.  It neatly summarises our vision for the Academy, and expresses the ethos for education we strive to provide; working tirelessly to raise the aspirations of every learner underpinned by our core ethos of positive achievement and success at every stage. We will strive to provide a child centred approach to learning boosting core literacy, numeracy and life skills; while developing their personal, social and emotional skills; Leading to high quality academic and vocational achievement and positive post-16 destinations.
