Welcome to the
Raise Academy Website
providing excellence
for every learner

A brand new SEN Free School opening in 2024 for up to 64 pupils aged 11-16 with a range of social, emotional and mental health difficulties. The new school will be situated in Widnes, and will welcome pupils from the Halton and St Helens areas.


The Raise Academy is a specialist provision supporting students experiencing social, emotional and/or mental health difficulties.

At Raise we recognise that whilst all children are different, each student deserves the same opportunities in life and therefore in order to achieve true equality and deliver an equitable experience in education, the answer is not in ensuring that all students have exactly the same, rather that all students have what they need to succeed.  Through the ability to offer an individualised and personalised, engaging curriculum, delivered by specialists, we have the chance to make a real difference and affect change in a special group of young people, their families and the wider local community.

All members of staff have a commitment and passion to deliver the best possible educational experiences, encouraging all students to dream big and empowering them to lead successful and fulfilling lives, in a safe and protected, well-supported atmosphere.  Our aim is to reignite that love for learning that may have been lost at some point, through inspirational teaching and provision of opportunity.

Please take a look at our website and feel free to contact the Academy for any further information.
