On Thursday 28th April 2016, students and staff at The Prescot School celebrated the renaming of Knowsley Park School returning to its original title dating back to its foundation in 1544. The Prescot School is set to join the outstanding multi academy Trust – The Heath Family Trust as a convertor academy.
The school was officially opened by Andy Reid, a veteran of the army who gave an inspirational speech about always working hard and facing any challenge that life throws at you.
During the ceremony, the audience were treated to a musical performance by the school choir and Wednesday Night Singers and a speech welcoming the school to the Trust by Mrs Heather Mullaney – Executive Principal.
After the ceremony, guests were invited to have a look at the mini museum displaying artefacts from the school’s history including a history written by F A Bailey, samples of the work students completed over the years and the crockery set dedicated to the school.
The younger students have already begun to benefit from the conversion with a revised curriculum and an increased number of subjects to study.
