Welcome to Wistaston Church Lane Academy.
I would like to welcome you to Wistaston Church Lane Academy. We really believe that happy children learn! Our mission is to challenge, excite and encourage a love of life and learning in every child. Please explore our website to find out about the vibrant life of the school, the work of our pupils and the quality education that we deliver.
I am very proud to be the Principal of a school where children are at the heart of everything that we do. All the adults in school work closely together, making our school a special place to learn and creating a warm, friendly, family feel as soon as you walk through the door.
We have a highly dedicated team who are committed to providing an excellent education for our children. We challenge our children to make excellent progress so that they are ready for the future.
We place a high value on providing a curriculum which is fun and exciting. Our four values are Challenge, Community, Self-Awareness and Creativity and these drive our curriculum, our behaviour and our rewards. We aim to enhance children's school experiences with the many extra-curricular opportunities that we offer, which include lots of educational visits to places all around the country.
At Church Lane, whilst Maths and English skills are important, we also believe in caring for, and developing the whole child. Pastoral care is valued highly, and we work closely with families to ensure our children are safe and happy. We are inclusive and we try to ensure that all pupils have their needs met. Before and After school care is available at Swan Stars.
We aim to inspire our children to become creative problem solvers, ready to thrive and succeed in the 21st century. We value perseverance, hard work, enthusiasm and a positive attitude – qualities which we believe will prepare our children for success at secondary school and beyond.
If you would like to learn more about life at Church Lane and how we can help your child to thrive, please do contact school to arrange a visit.
I look forward to meeting you.
