Priestley Education and Training Trust

Amount awarded by PETT so far

The Priestley Education and Training Trust has made a difference to the lives of dozens of young people and continues to do so.

It was set up with the aim of supporting students’ educational aims and objectives through grants, donations and other payments. Few who were involved at the time could have imagined how far-reaching and varied its impact would be.

So far PETT has helped a young man whose dream is to represent his country in the Tokyo Paralympics, a soprano who needed support when studying abroad and another former student who went to South America to teach in an impoverished area.

Everyone the charity supports is either a former or current student with aspirations of continuing their education in some way or have aspirations that either inspire others or will make a difference in the world. 

Not only are we very proud of the charity, but also the people it helps as they show what exceptional young people study at Priestley College every year.

If you are inspired to support the teaching and training trust, you can do so by posting a cheque made payable to Priestley Education and Training Trust or PETT. Send it to Julie McCann, PETT Treasurer, Care of Priestley College, Loushers Lane, Warrington, WA4 6RD.
