Education secretary praises Oak View Academy

Cabinet minister Damian Hinds heaped praise on the ‘inspirational leadership’ at Oak View Academy after a visit to see the school’s stunning turnaround.

The Secretary of State for Education described the Winsford primary as a 'success story' after witnessing its ‘truly dramatic’ progress since being ranked second-worst in the country five years ago.

At its lowest ebb in 2014, the Whitby’s Lane school was taken on by North West Academies Trust (NWAT) and relaunched as Oak View.
