The Academy is situated in the South East corner of Blackpool in the district of Marton. It is within one mile of the M55 motorway and is well served by other routes. Staff commute to the area from Fleetwood and Lancaster in the North, Preston and Blackburn in the East, Chorley, Southport and Wigan to the South. Manchester and Liverpool are within an hour’s drive of Blackpool, as are the Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales and the Trough of Bowland.
Since September 2002 St George’s has been the only Church of England Secondary School on the Fylde Coast, serving the parishes of St Paul’s St Christopher’s with St Nicholas’ and St Wilfrid’s. The Academy has been over subscribed in recent years and the pace of change continues to accelerate. Governors and staff are determined to hold fast the principles which have brought the Academy to its present success. Those principles are a belief in the worth of each child and the worth of our work as educators in a Christian Academy.
