Year 7 Team

We have a brilliant Year 7 team, all of whom work tirelessly to ensure you settle straight into life at North Liverpool Academy.

We’ve profiled the team below, so you can get an understanding of who your new teachers will be when you join!

Miss Robinson – Year Manager

Miss Robinson is part of the Academy’s inclusion team and looks after your child’s pastoral needs. She has enjoyed being part of the Academy for four years. What many people don’t know is that she is also a trained English teacher. Her main hobbies are reading and taking her children on outdoor adventures. She looks forward to accompanying the new Year 7 students on many exciting trips.

Miss Barnes – Form Tutor

Miss Barnes has worked in North Liverpool Academy since October and having made the transition from working in a primary school to a secondary school, she knows exactly how our new Year 7s will be feeling.

She wants to reassure her new form students that at NLA they will always have somebody to talk to and if they ever need any help or guidance, everybody is really helpful and always ready to help.
