Children invited to try Christmas crafts at Grosvenor Park Academy

Grosvenor Park Academy is hosting a morning of Christmas crafts on Saturday 7 December, from 9.30am.

The city-centre primary is inviting children aged three-to-five and families to get crafty and have a tour of the historic school.

Teachers, staff and children who attend the school will entertain youngsters whilst parents will get the opportunity to ask questions and look around.

Grosvenor Park Academy, formerly University Church Free School (UCFS), joined the North West Academies Trust (NWAT) in December last year with an Ofsted ‘good’ rating.

Head of School Richard Clark said: “We hope lots of parents come to our event. We have made many improvements at the school we’d be delighted to share them with parents.”

Wenda Smith is Executive Head at the school as well as Head of School at St Martin’s Academy, Chester. She has guided the Hoole primary to become the most over-subscribed school in West Cheshire.

She is keen for prospective parents to visit Grosvenor Park Academy.

She said: “This is a great opportunity to come to see the school, ask questions and find out about our plans to give our children the very best education possible.”

Among the other NWAT schools is Delamere Academy, near Northwich, and Acresfield Primary School, Chester, both ranked in the top 180 state primary schools in the country by The Sunday Times, last month.

Booking is required as places are limited. Please contact email: or tel: 01244 569560.
