Welcome to the De La Salle Academy website. I became a member of the school community in 2016 and am now proud to lead the school forward as Principal.
Our aim is to make the De La Salle Academy the first choice for all boys living in the community of Norris Green and Croxteth and then beyond. The academy has gone through many challenges and developments over the past 5 years – now is the time to build upon the strong foundations and fulfil our aims.
During the 2020 pandemic, the academy was awarded the educate award for ‘community’ for its commitment and work to our local community and students alike. This work is simply a reflection of what happens every day inside the building.
The academy community is built on strength and resilience with an unwavering belief that every young boy that enters our community will walk out a successful, respected young man.
That belief in underpinned by hard work and dedication. The team that I have the pleasure of leading continually give every minute of every day to ensure that our young men get what they need.
Our Lasallian core principles drive us each day and underpin our work as a community. Respect is the fundamental bedrock to enable us to build a brighter, better future for all. Each student is taught the essentials of respect for all, their equipment and the environment – it is this that allows quality education and learning to take place. All our students have access to a quality education; I see my role in leading the school, is to show them what they can do with it. Opening up a world of exploration and widening horizons is ultimately the end goal of all those involved with the academy.
In order to achieve all this: first choice school; outstanding learning; widened horizons; we need the help and support of our parents. It is only through a close, respectful relationship that our aims can ultimately be achieved.
My one question to the whole community as I took up post was: ‘what part are you going to play?’. I ask this question to you reading this message and invite you to be part of something special.
