Welcome to University Church of England Academy


Welcome to the University Church of England Academy, Ellesmere Port, an Academy with an ethos based on Anglican beliefs where we welcome students from all faiths.

We are a part of the University of Chester Academies Trust and work collaboratively with the other academies in our UCAT family to allow our students and staff opportunities to develop themselves in a manner that other schools cannot.

This is embodied in the UCAT and Academy vision: Believe - Belong - Become

At our Academy, we offer students a very high quality education within a well-disciplined environment; combining the best in traditional education: high quality teaching, regular homework, high standards in behaviour, smart uniform with quality enrichment opportunities.

We deliver this first class education, in a brand new state of the art building, using new technologies to support and enrich the learning experience and curriculum. This rich combination ensures that we are able to prepare all our students for the challenges of the future.

We give every student the opportunity to develop his/her individual talents to the full. We expect every student to work hard and progress well, and in order to achieve this, we need every parent/carer to support our Academy in this work.

We aim to develop each child through our Christian Core Values, our aim is to develop and maintain a culture that:

  • enables individuals to Believe in themselves and in their ability, as well as in others
  • cultivates within our students and staff a true sense that they Belong to a family that cares for them and supports them
  • enriches and extends their learning so that each can Become the individual they aspire to be

I am confident that your child will make excellent progress, achieve his/her best and become a confident, independent learner.
