About Us

We are a sponsored academy, and opened as Knowsley Lane Primary School, part of the SS Simon and Jude Academy Trust T/A Vantage Academy Trust on 1st September 2014.  There has been a school on our site since 1938, with several generations of our community attending the predecessor school.

Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council has a Children’s Centre, New Horizons, attached to our school.  We have close links with both the Children’s Centre and High Hopes Nursery, the early years provision operating from the facility.

Please take some time to look around our website.  We hope this gives you an insight into the ethos and education at Knowsley Lane.
