New Alternative Provision School, King's Leadership Phoenix Academy, Now Open in Wavertree, Liverpool


We are thrilled to announce the opening of King's Leadership Phoenix Academy, an innovative and dynamic alternative provision school in the heart of Wavertree, Liverpool. To lead this exciting venture, we are pleased to introduce our newly appointed Principal, Mr. Daniel Cross.

Part of the Great Schools Trust, King's Leadership Phoenix Academy aims to be a beacon of hope for students facing diverse challenges by providing a nurturing and supportive learning environment. We believe that every young person has the potential to succeed, and our mission is to unlock that potential through personalised education, mentorship, and a holistic approach to development.

Mr Cross, an experienced educational leader, has been appointed as the Principal of King's Leadership Phoenix Academy. Having developed his career within the Great Schools Trust at King’s Leadership Academy Liverpool, Dingle, Mr Cross brings a wealth of experience and a passion for making a positive impact in the lives of students.

"We are thrilled to introduce King's Leadership Phoenix Academy to Liverpool," said Mr Cross. "Our goal is to create a positive and supportive learning environment for all of our students, where they can develop academically, socially, and emotionally. We believe that every student has the potential for greatness, and it's our mission to help them realise it.

“We want to be a warm, supportive and inclusive community welcoming students of all backgrounds and abilities. Whilst every student will have their own story of why they have come to us, at King’s Phoenix every student starts with a clean slate and our focus is solely on what they do next.  We seek to re-build their confidence and resilience and give them the tools they need to embark on the next chapter of their lives”.

King's Leadership Phoenix Academy will focus on:

Tailored Learning - We recognise that every student is unique and learns differently. Our school will offer personalised learning plans to meet the diverse needs of our students as part of a high-quality education with an aspirational curriculum.

Character Development - Beyond academic success, we will emphasize character education, leadership skills, and personal growth, ensuring students leave King's Leadership Phoenix Academy well-prepared for life's challenges.

CEO of Great Schools Trust, Mr Shane Ierston, noted, “King's Leadership Phoenix Academy will serve as an invaluable asset to Liverpool's young people, collaboratively working with the local authority and community schools to enrich lives across the borough.”

King’s Leadership Phoenix Academy is located on Wavertree Technology Park. For further information, please visit the King's Leadership Phoenix Academy website at: www.kingsphoenix.com.
