Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS -

THREE pri­mary schools are ap­ply to be­come vol­un­tary acad­e­mies con­nected to All Hal­lows Catholic Col­lege.

St Al­ban’s in Mac­cles­field, St Mary’s in Con­gle­ton and St Paul’s in Poyn­ton are aim­ing to ben­e­fit from the Gov­ern­ment pri­mary chain grant, which will help them es­tab­lish new ways of work­ing with All Hal­lows, their feeder school. Nora Arm­strongBoyle, head­teacher at St Paul’s, said “We have been ex­plor­ing the idea of be­com­ing a vol­un­tary academy for some time and we think the dioce­san multi-academy trust model is right for us.”

Teresa Cooke, head­teacher of St Al­ban’s agreed say­ing: “Since be­com­ing head of St Al­ban’s we have re­ally ben­e­fited from the support we give to each other and our sense of shared pur­pose.”

Tony Billings, prin­ci­pal of All Hal­lows, said “We are re­ally look­ing for­ward to the pos­si­bil­ity of be­ing joined by oth­ers in an ar­range­ment which will make part­ner­ship work­ing for the com­mu­nity we serve se­cure for the fu­ture. We whole-heart­edly rec­om­mend the ben­e­fits of academy sta­tus.”
