World Book Day

YOUNGSTERS from primary schools across town have visited Beamont Collegiate Academy as part of World Book Day celebrations. Authors Jon Mayhew and Cathy Cassidy dropped into the Long Lane school with pupils from nearby primary schools as part of festivities.

Unique TCAT academy trust approved

THE town’s newest academy trust will be responsible for 6,000 children and 900 staff at eight Warrington schools.

Plans for Priestley College, Penketh High, Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High, Beamont Collegiate Academy, Bridgewater High, Great Sankey Primary and Penketh South Primary schools to team up have been approved by the government.

And all eyes are on Warrington as The Challenge Academy Trust becomes one of the biggest and most inclusive trusts in the country.
