Alder Grange School is a successful 11-19 comprehensive High School. There are approximately 850 pupils on roll including around 140 in the sixth form.

Located in the beautiful Rossendale Valley with fantastic countryside views and conveniently close to the Motorways with easy access to Manchester and beyonds.

We were Ofsted inspected in January of this year, and are delighted to retain our "Good" rating, with Ofsted particularly praising the work of our English department.

At Alder Grange the majority of our teachers are form tutors, and stay with their form throughout years 7 to 13. Whilst we try to ensure teachers teach within their specialism, staff may be required to teach second subjects at KS3: such as PSHE, RE, IT or computer science. Teaching of second subjects is well supported by subject and curriculum leads, and the sharing of best practices and ideas is strong across curriculum areas. Should you have a second subject specialism please indicate this in your letter of application
