• 2017 Educate Awards

    Congratulations to St Helens schools The District CofE Primary School and Rainford High on winning awards, and to Hope Academy for being a runner up at the 2017 Educate Awards in Liverpool.

    The District CofE Primary School in Newton-le-Willows won the Innovative and Creative Literacy award for its pioneering ‘Reading is STEMsational’ project, while Rainford High was awarded for its Outstanding Commitment to Sport in Secondary School.

    Rainford has taken part in over 200 fixtures so far during 2017 and has achieved significant team success in football, athletics, basketball, rugby and netball. The school also has a number of highly successful individuals including Jacob Kelly, who has just made the GB tumbling team.

    Conor has visited, supported and worked with both these schools, and their fantastic staff and pupils are a credit to the outstanding teaching in St Helens.
