West Lakes Academy are pleased to announce that the Regional Schools Commissioner and Department for Education has approved our application to become a Sponsored Multi-Academy Trust (MAT).


Our successful application drew on our sponsors, The NDA, Sellafield Ltd., and UCLan’s proven commitment and success in creating the fully inclusive, aspirational, high achieving West Lakes Academy, firmly rooted in the local community. Mr Johnson, Principal, said “Our vision is to succeed in ‘Changing Lives through Learning’ by providing such an educational experience for each child that will give them a preparation for life which is excelled by no other institution in the land. This will be our distinction.”


He added “I would like to thank staff, Governors, parents and carers for their engagement in making our Academy such a very special place. Most importantly we would like to thank our wonderful students; they are the very reason why we do what we do. They are our best ambassadors and it’s their attitude to learning coupled with our transformational improvement in standards which we are sure cemented the belief in our ability to be a MAT.”
