What the school says...
Hope Corner Academy - A New and Exciting Special Educational Needs School, it is part of Hope Corner Community Church and was initiated to meet the needs of our community. Our passion and heart is to meet the needs of young people who are marginalised and excluded from education and society, and their families.
In our local community we were witnessing the breakdown of family values. We believe that Christianity has a lot to say about families and so we decided that we would do all we can to meet those needs. Our projects are designed to encompass the whole of the family, from the youngest to the oldest, regardless of race, beliefs, or sexual orientation; our number one goal is to support people at their point of need.
Hope Corner Academy was born from this vision and is the only church run Independent SEN School in Halton. At Hope Corner Academy we provide a wide range of educational programmes for young people aged 14 to 17, with a range of special educational needs including moderate, behavioural, emotional and autistic with associated behaviours. We are approved by the Department for Education and Ofsted to provide education for young people with special educational needs.
With considerable expertise in working with young people, we offer a holistic learning environment, providing a new state of the art learning facility and specially trained staff; all dedicated to supporting you and all underpinned by our unsurpassed care, support and real understanding. We want you, our students, to lead a happy, full life and to fulfil your potential. Our programmes of learning help you do just that. We have a wide ranging curriculum for you to enjoy, with access to terrific facilities in our new centre. With wider access to youth clubs and camps, the social life is great as well!
Everyone learns differently. That is why we work with you, the student, plus your family and wider circle of support, to develop an individual learning plan, suited to how you learn best. As you learn, we make sure all your specialist needs are taken care of. Working together with your experienced and qualified teachers and therapists, we create a programme of learning and care, so you can achieve real and demonstrable progress.
Together, we can look with greater confidence to a brighter future. One where you can fulfil your potential, be confident and happy, becoming an active citizen in your community.
