Our school is the beating heart of our community and we pride ourselves in our vision as a school which serves our community and works in partnership as part of a community based, values focussed, cross phased multi-academy trust.

We have approximately 1300 students in Years 7 to 11 and offer a full academically inclusive curriculum with exceptionally high expectations over the knowledge, the skills and the experiences all of our students will gain during their time with us. We strive to deliver the best results with our enthusiastic and talented team of staff who see it as their job to help every one of our students to achieve their individual potential. We have a wide and engaging curriculum with English, mathematics, science, humanities and modern foreign languages at its core. Alongside, personal values education, performing arts, expressive arts and physical education and community programmes, we also develop our students’ wider personal and leadership skills and help to equip them for a successful future in our changing world

We have an exceptional £43 million building and as you would expect, we are able to offer one of the most stimulating learning environments in the North West of England, with cutting edge facilities in each department. Outstanding sports, art, drama and music facilities are available to all students and are regularly used by our community too.

Our students are GREAT – Genuine, Respect, Excellence, Achieve, Together. I am very proud of all of them, and very proud to be part of the Ashton and Tameside communities. We are proud of the high academic and vocational standards our students achieve, but equally proud of the way in which they grow up to be responsible, hardworking and healthy adults who contribute fully to their community.
