Head Teacher Welcome

A Warm Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Childwall Sports and Science Academy, part of the Lydiate Learning Trust.

Here at Childwall Academy it is paramount that our children are happy, safe and enjoying their learning. Childwall is an ambitious Academy with high standards and an excellent reputation for the care and support offered to all. We are a diverse community where difference is embraced, encouraged and celebrated. Leaders are very proud that we are a popular school that continues to grow and improve in all areas.

I’m enormously proud that we achieved an Ofsted ‘Good’ rating in all aspects in May 2022. Our students and staff always work incredibly hard, and it is excellent to have their achievements recognised by Ofsted. Leaders were recognised for ‘working hard to improve the quality of education that pupils receive’ and introducing a ‘broad and ambitious curriculum for all pupils’.  Ofsted observed that ‘Pupils are happy at school. They value the diverse community and welcoming ethos of the school.’

Strong leadership across the school and the Trust ensures that our passion to provide the very best education possible for all our students is pursued every day. Learning without limits is important to us at Childwall. Each member of staff within the school are very aware that they contribute to the foundations and success of your child’s future.

As Head Teacher, I am passionate that the Academy is an engaging and vibrant learning hub for all. Under my leadership the school empowers individuals of all ages to learn and lead through the many positive experiences we provide. We are excited to continue our improvements and strive for excellence in all areas. We commit to all aspects of learning and reading for pleasure is an important part of our expectation and development. Our comprehensive, well planned, well researched, curriculum enables our students from Year 7 to Year 13 to make informed choices in their future beyond Childwall Academy.

All subjects are important within our Academy and we are very proud that our students go on to study or train in a wide range of specialisms, such as Medicine, Music and Midwifery. Our aim is for all our students to be confident in their own abilities, formulating high levels of subject knowledge alongside being well-rounded individuals who are competent in the social skills of perseverance, proficiency and integrity.

I hope you find the information you need on our website. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to arrange a tour.

Welcome from CEO

Ann Stahler, CEO and Executive Headteacher, Lydiate Learning Trust

As Chief Executive Officer of Lydiate Learning Trust I am privileged to work with Childwall Sports & Science Academy and the great team of Governors, staff, students and parents at the school. Together, with my Executive staff and Trustees, we share the same values and ambition across our learning community to challenge and support each other to Engage, Enable & Empower.

The Lydiate Learning Trust is a network of schools and academies working across communities in the North West of England, including Liverpool. The Trust is founded on the core beliefs that every child should be afforded the very best opportunities in life.  We engage with all within our Trust and beyond to enable students to show the world their strengths, ideas and passion. Our partnerships across the region help ensure that this opportunity is extended to as many young people as possible. Staff in our schools guarantees academic excellence and a fundamental ethos of aspiration that inspires all of our students to flourish, achieve their goals and fulfil their potential.

As CEO, my vision is to support every member of staff and young person so they can discover and achieve their personal best. The Trust is committed to the pursuit of excellence, and young people are at the heart of everything we do and their personal wellbeing is prioritised at every stage.  

Everyone has a part to play in Lydiate Learning Trust and everyone is listened to.  Team work is precious, but so too are initiative and originality. We encourage positive attitudes and a “can-do” culture. We aim to provide a secure, safe environment in which all of our learners feel valued and where they can develop the skills, attributes and confidence which will serve them well throughout their life. We are fully inclusive and we are very proud of the high level of achievement and attainment of all of our youngsters, both in terms of academic success and participation in the many other opportunities that we are able to offer.

I hope this website gives you a flavour of Childwall Sports & Science Academy. We hope you want to join Childwall Sports & Science Academy and look forward to working with you in the future.
