Shaw Education Trust Welcomes Two New Schools to Its Family

Shaw Education Trust is delighted to announce the addition of two exceptional schools to its growing family of educational institutions. As of July 1, 2024, The Russett School and Hallwood Park Primary School and Nursery have officially joined the Trust, marking an exciting new chapter in their educational journeys.

Hallwood Park Primary School and Nursery is a friendly one-form entry primary school with its own nursery, situated on a large site in a peaceful corner of the Hallwood Park Estate in Runcorn. The school's overall vision is to provide all children with a stimulating, safe, and happy environment in which to learn and reach their potential.

Mrs. Gemma Snell, Interim Head Teacher of Hallwood Park, expressed her enthusiasm about joining the Trust: "We are excited to become part of Shaw Education Trust. Our commitment to developing confident learners aligns perfectly with the Trust's ethos. We look forward to continuing our work in preparing children for secondary education and beyond, while benefiting from the Trust's support and resources."

Hallwood Park prides itself on offering a range of curriculum opportunities that help create well-rounded students and emphasises the importance of close collaboration between staff and parents to ensure children get the best start in their educational journey.

The Russett School, a specialist setting for pupils aged 2 to 19 years with Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD) and Complex Learning Needs, brings its expertise in providing bespoke curricula tailored to meet the unique needs of its learners.

Jo Morgan, Chief Executive Officer of Shaw Education Trust, expressed enthusiasm about the new partnerships: "We are thrilled to welcome The Russett School and Hallwood Park Primary School and Nursery into our Trust. Their dedication to providing high-quality, inclusive education aligns perfectly with our mission. We look forward to supporting both schools in their continued growth and success."

The Trust extends a warm welcome to all staff members, students, parents, and community partners associated with both schools. This expansion not only strengthens the Shaw Education Trust's diverse portfolio but also provides new opportunities for collaboration, resource sharing, and educational innovation across the Trust's network.

As these schools embark on this new journey, Shaw Education Trust reaffirms its commitment to maintaining each school's unique identity while providing the support and resources necessary for continued excellence in education. The Trust looks forward to working closely with both school communities to ensure a smooth transition and to build upon their existing strengths, ultimately enhancing the educational experiences of all students under its care.
