College Joins Ground-breaking Educational Federation


Collège rejoint la fédération de l'éducation révolutionnaire

A pioneering collaboration between Liverpool Hope University and two North-West sixth form colleges has been hailed as “unprecedented and exciting”.

The University has partnered with St Mary’s Sixth Form College in Blackburn and Cheadle & Marple Sixth Form College to form the ground-breaking Federation of Hope initiative. The Federation is a unique model of education that unites the colleges, which are from faith and non-faith backgrounds, to work together for the benefit of students within their community.

Cheadle & Marple Principal Jenny Singleton was asked to lend her expertise to St Mary’s after it experienced financial problems in 2017. Ms Singleton helped transform the fortunes of the 94-year-old college, which was founded in 1925, and will now take the role of Principal at both colleges along with becoming chief executive of the Federation.

Rev. Peter Winn, Chair and Pro Chancellor of Liverpool Hope University Council, Nick McNeill, Chair of the Board of Governors at St Mary’s College, Professor Kenneth Newport, Pro-Vice Chancellor of Liverpool Hope University

Une collaboration pionnière entre la Liverpool Hope University et deux collèges de sixième cycle du Nord-Ouest a été saluée comme "sans précédent et passionnante".

L’Université s’est associée au Sixth Form College de St Mary à Blackburn et au Sixième Collège de Cheadle & Marple pour former l’initiative novatrice de la Fédération de l’espoir. La Fédération est un modèle d'éducation unique qui unit les collèges, issus de milieux confessionnels et non confessionnels, à travailler ensemble dans l'intérêt des étudiants de leur communauté.

Jenny Singleton, directrice de Cheadle & Marple, a été invitée à apporter son savoir-faire à St. Mary's après des problèmes financiers en 2017. Mme Singleton a contribué à transformer le destin de ce collège de 94 ans, fondé en 1925, qui assumera désormais le rôle de directeur des deux collèges et devient directeur général de la Fédération.
