What the school offers its staff

The Elton High School is a significantly oversubscribed school with a tradition of excellence. We have a history of high achievement and our recent Ofsted inspection reflects this. The most recent inspection (February 2022) reiterated the strengths that had been confirmed in the previous report (2017) and are firmly embedded across our school. The inspection team noted that ‘pupils are proud to attend’ Elton with an established culture of ‘high aspirations for what pupils can achieve’. Our students achieve well, with the inspectors being particularly impressed with the climate for learning and behaviour of our students – their ‘positive behaviour at all times is characteristic of the respectful culture of this school [and] their positive conduct reflects leaders’ high standards’.

The success of our school is built on the expertise of our high-quality staff. We have a strong system of staff training in place aimed at developing the very best practice, moreover we have a constant focus on ensuring that all of our team feel supported to give of their best and to have a work life balance. We pride ourselves on taking a proactive approach to promoting the well-being of everyone in our school community and consistently review opportunities to further promote staff well-being. Initiatives include a half termly Golden Week (no meetings scheduled) and an annual Well-being Day for every member of staff.

The school has excellent transport links with the M60, M61, M62 and M66 Motorways crisscrossing the area plus the Metrolink Light Rapid Transit system with a fast and frequent service from Bury centre through Manchester city centre to East Didsbury.
