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.
