Parbold Douglas Church of England Academy

Shining Lights Alliance

We are a group of like-minded schools, committed to sharing great practice and supporting the development of our people.


Our work together is led by our strategic partner schools:


Parbold Douglas CE Academy
Moorside Academy

Chorley St James CE Primary School

Eccleston Primary School

Trinity & St Michael's CE & Methodist Primary School


We serve a diverse range of contexts but are united by a shared ambition for the flourishing of all children, young people and adults. We work with a number of other local schools and are open to partnerships with all who share our vision and our commitment to an open, collaborative network of schools. 


We meet regularly, innovate together, share our expertise, share resources and plan a range of initiatives to support the development of our people, whatever roles or positions they may hold.


As a former Teaching School Alliance, we have a strong reputation across the region, having provided popular professional development programmes and a successful school-based Initial Teacher Training course.
